simple audio interface for playing using midi

Hi all,

I would like to buy a simple sound card, what's important for me is only low latency.
(I'm connecting my keyboard to the pc using midi usb)
using pianoteq,

all i want is just to play (without any recording or other inputs)

any recommended value sound card that will do the job?

What would you recommend?

another question, that I would like to know,
as I understand, the Audio Interface main job is to convert the digital signal to analog, (as a sound card)

lets assume I have an HDMI output on my video card, (nvidia gtx 970)
of course I see movies (in true-hd audio format and dts-ma), which sounds great.

so if I output the pianoteq to the hdmi (this is still digital) to the receiver (high end), and connecting passive monitors -
what's the quality difference? what's the latency difference?
is still the audio interface needed?

Thanks a lot!
