I can't see myself using HDMI or HDCP very much at all since I don't watch much tv, I don't own a blu-ray player and don't play console games. The only time I watch movies is at the cinema, or on my PC.
With that in mind it would be kinda redundant forking out the extra cash to get HDMI and HDCP, wouldn't it? I was just told I should always keep up with the latest techonology, and HDMI certainly is becoming the standard, but maybe for me I don't need it.
My vid card is an XFX 5770 with dual DVI so no probs there
