I need a video card PCIe x 16 that can handle 3 monitors. 2 x DVI and 1 x HDMI. I need the hdmi to also carry the audio.

Any help would be appreciated.

It's a quad DVI-I card but comes with an adapter to allow HDMI output with 5.1 audio
And leaves you with a fourth DVI output for later :)

You won't get a single slot solution for an SPDIF HDMI output plus two DVI.

looks interesting. I will look into it. I see windows 7 is not listed, how old is this card?

Any Radeon Eyefinity card will support three monitors.  The card must be an HD5400 series or later, and you will need active displayport to DVI adapters: http://support.amd.com/us/eyefinity/Pages/eyefinity-dongles.aspx  One of the ouput ports of these cards usually is HDMI.

Were using a ATI Radeon HD5800 series adapter. Works like a charm. Easy to use grid for deviding your screens and placing specific output on. See http://www.amd.com/US/PRODUCTS/NOTEBOOK/GRAPHICS/ATI-MOBILITY-HD-5800/Pages/ati-mobility-hd-5800.aspx
