Dam, That makes me want to order one for my HTPC... The 280 GTX allows audio through HDMI right?

Yeah, laptop is showing its age and I can turn my HTPC into a gaming rig for those demanding games.

I know the 295 and the 4870 do Audio through HDMI but does the 280? It has HDMI hookup but can it pass audio?

EDIT:
Do you think I should wait for the 285? It uses alot less power but don't know if its worth the extra cost...

if i'm not mistaken, you need a pass through capable motherboad/sound card to hook up to the graphics card. the 280 does do pass through audio though.

yeah, I also have this touch screen mp3 player.. I'm jobless and I need the money for gas cuz I just met this girl and she is 20 miles away. I could only get 3 fingers in but when our eyes met it was magical.
