Hi Rich, interesting, although I'm unsure whether that model is available in the UK. I have seen some similar spec machines from Sony. Sure, the 770 in my signature is soon to be replaced with a 1070. Is this Sony TV one you personally own?

Edit: actually, looks like it may be available in the U.K, but supply may be a problem.

Yes it is - newest Sony available currently - you should be fine with that new video card - see if you can find the model I stated - 43" for me anyway is a perfect size its pretty big any bigger and I would have to sit back further away which I prefer not to do

 

As it is I have to make my web browsing windows smaller and placed in middle of my screen - full screen way to big - good luck took back Samsung was way different looking than this Sony it is much closer to the pc monitors visually - could no get used to that Samsung visuals and was hard to get it to look right in P3D - so it got returned

 

All that said its still an awesome UHD 4k tv for that use also - go to youtube and search 4k test videos - you will be blown away

If you research it, an expensive HDMI cable is usually a huge waste of money. The majority of cables work just fine, as long as they are rated for the video you are trying to do.  Spending almost $90 on a cable is not worth it in my opinion, and most professionals as well.

 

Expensive HDMI Cables are not worth it

As Nick says above. HDMI is a purely digital interface and as such, you can think of it in terms of bits and bytes. Either the bits are 1 or they are 0. There is no in between. So either the HDMI cable works and display a correct image on the screen or it does not.

 

Stores and manufacturers offering high quality HDMI cables that cost a huge amount more that generic cables along side them on the shelf are simply conning people into believing that they will get a better image. Not true.

 

Unlike analogue cables of yesterday, where there was potentially some minor benefit to be derived from using higher quality (a-la-gold plated) connections, digital does not benefit from this.

 

So, by high quality in terms of HDMI cables, just look for well made brand name cables but don't fall for all the marketing tricks and fork out huge amounts in the hope or expectation that it will provide a better, crisper higher quality image - because it will not.

Absolutely. It's a hang over from the analogue HiFi market. But as you correctly say, using a digital signal, it no longer has any value.
