Does HDMI work the same as DVI when using a graphics card?

If my graphics card has an HDMI output and my monitor has HDMI input, will it work like DVI would?

P.S. I have a monitor with VGA and HDMI input. My graphics card has a DVI and HDMI output. Will the HDMI work?

P.P.S. I know this is kind of a stupid question, but I am really not sure, and don't want any issues when setting up my computer.

  1. Best answer
    Long as the hdmi connector sockets fit from tv/monitor to video card, yes it'll work.
    Make sure on the monitor/tv you change the source.
    On my new sanyo 32 inch tv, I need to change the source of it for it to work out.
    Make sure you reboot your computer once if your still in the os so it will work.
    Also for your first question read this and the solution, that will explain the different between dvi and hdmi.

    GE works out best with a dvi to hdmi converter, make sure to look for 1080pi ultra.

    And what is GE? Is it General Electric?
  3. When I got my graphics card, it seems as if hdmi works better than dvi, dvi gets jaggy edges
  4. There's no quality difference in digital connections. If dvi was aliasing, it's because settings were different.
