    Hi All,

    Im looking for a recomendation for which Graphics card to buy for a 2009 Mac Pro. We dont need anything to powerful, just looking for a card that can run and HDMI Monitor and deleiver sound via HDMI. Ideally would like to be able to use the card on El Capitan and book screen.

    Thanks in advance guys

    From memory, only 5,1 can deliver audio via HDMI. A 4,1 must be flashed to 5,1 in order to do that. But I am not 100% sure about this, and my 4,1 is already flashed, so can't test it.
