HDMI on Hp z800

Hi, I have a HP z800 that I just bought. It has 64 gigs of ram , the 1100 power supply and dual z5670 cpu’s.

 I’d like to have hdmi available but I’m not sure if is even possible or how it could be set up.  Doesn't appear to be any info available on this subject anywhere.  

Has anyone done this?

  • Hi, what graphics card does it have ? If your graphics card doesn't have a hdmi port then you can use a displayport to hdmi adaptor or a dvi to hdmi adaptor to connect to your hdmi device.

  • I think you may have answered my question.  If my graphics card supports HDMI then, I assume, so will the hp z800.  Have I got that right?

    • Gary , yes, you are correct. But if you have a graphics card without a hdmi port, unless you need a better card, there's no need to buy one with a hdmi port, just buy an adaptor. If it has  DisplayPort just make sure that the adaptor is of a higher grade and will carry the audio signal as the early, cheaper ones sometimes don't. If it has only dvi and or vga ports you will have to run a separate audio cable to enable sound from your hdmi device (usually not necessary when using a DisplayPort to hdmi adaptor).
