Don't think you were, or are stupid. It's not like plugging a table lamp into a wall socket, there are so many types and standards of connections, takes a while to grasp.

Good, luck.

Just curious, but can I use this instead of the multiple cables you suggested? It says it does both audio and video?

Gday.
This is my understanding. Have a look at the GPU Displayport, is it marked DP++ (DisplayPort++)? a passive adapter requires that port to get sound. If a HDMI device is detected, the output is automatically switched. Not sure what quality video you will get on that large display.I suppose it is cheap enough to give it a try regardless.


Contact the site selling the adaptor and get clarification.


Contact http://mycablemart.com Tell them the video card, that you want to use Displayport to HDMI on a 42" TV, see what they advice. Can the give you an indication as to quality of the display.


Please let me know so I have more info for the future.
Thanks.

My message to them:



I have a GeForce GTX 760 Superclocked graphics card. It runs via HDMI to my 50 inch TV. I want to add a 2nd TV to my setup, a 42 inch TV, via DisplayPort to HDMI adapter. What will be the quality of the display? How can I get sound? On Newegg, I found a DisplayPort that does audio and video. I see the one you have only does video?
Thank you!

Their reply:

This specific model does NOT support audio.



This one does:

Gday.
Hopefully they may come back with more infor. You could ask them what resolution is supported and what is the bandwidth. I don't think using an adaptor + audio cable would give you any more quality than an all in one adaptor. You might try looking for videos of people using that kind of connection.
I would be inclined to purchase the adaptor and see for yourself,
