    Hello I recently purchased a nvidea GTX 650 and the PSU needed to run the card properly. Now I have just purchased a

    Samsung UE32D5520 32-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p 100Hz LED SMART Internet TV with Freeview


    and I noticed the HDMI slot on the graphic card is too small for an HDMI to HDMI cable.


    I have connected the PC and TV via the VGA port and switched to generic PnP 1080p display in windows.


    All works fine ... in fact I am well pleased. But my pessimism will not go away....


    1) Im I getting the best out of the setup using VGA?


    2) Do I need to download Samsung drivers for PC?


    3) What is the mini HDMI looking slot in the back of my graphic card that actually says HDMI but is too small?


    Many thanks in advance for any help

    HMDI will give you a full digital signal and it may give you a slightly better picture. It'll also carry digital audio if you using the TV for audio output.

    No, and there may not even be any.

    Could be a Mini-HDMI port: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882678052

    Or DisplayPort: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DisplayPort

    Or Mini-Display Port: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mini_DisplayPort

    Any of those can be easily converted to regular HDMI unless the TV has a native (mini)DisplayPort

    Ok seeing as I am not using the TV for sound it seems like I can just leave it as it is.

    I will buy a mini HDMI cable but its not a priority right now

    Thanks for the help
