As far as Windows is concerned HDMI and DVI are the same. Windows will use what the monitor reports over DDC/EDID. As long as that is correct it will be fine. Windows will not do anything with the colourspace over HDMI unless the device says to.
I've only seen a problem once with a cheap Acer monitor that reported that it was a TV over HDMI but a monitor over DVI. All other monitors I have ever seen report correctly over HDMI. As Max Dread has two good Dell Ultrasharp monitors there should be no issue with the DDC/EDID being wrong.
I won't pretend I'm not confused
So is the info in that article wrong?

You said "HDMI-DVI" the first time so I assumed your card had 1 DVI output and 1 HDMI output in which case my point stands.
Yes that's right, my card has 1 DVI output and 1 HDMI output (as well as a VGA). That much I can say and understand. The rest I'm still confused about.
My apologies if I'm being ultra thick here.
