Most of the new flat panels are using HDMI connectors. I have the below video card:

This card comes with an "HDMI adapter". Is this adapter going to be problematic? I've heard some people have had problems getting them to work right with these newer flat panels and have had to resort to analog/VGA.
I wouldn't think it would be a problem. It's not like it's doing anything other than converting the connector. Just takes the DVI pins and turns them into HDMI ones.

It would be no different than using a DVI -> HDMI cable. That's what I use with my HTPC/LCD TV.
