I have installed a new video graphics board on my Dimension E520 and the instructions for the board says to connect the supplied cable to the s/pdif output on the motherboard in order for the sound to be transmitted through the HDMI. When I look at the motherboard, it has a place for the s/pdif connector but no connector is installed. Is there a s/pdif output available?
To my knowledge, the E520 has no digital audio output. If you need to have a full HDMI capability you would be better off procuring one of the video cards that also have a sound device on the board. There are several of these from ATI, I'm not so sure about nVidia.
