The card spec say that but then the picture they use I only see S-video and DVI. If his card has all those connections I wonder why he didn't just use the card.

You'll need DVI to monitor and HDMI to TV HDMI. You typically cannot use the onboard and video card at the same time. And if you can it is generally not the best solution.
