A question about Graphics Cards and HDMI cables.

Hello all. I recently purchased and installed a ATI Radeon HD4350 graphics card. On the box it says the graphics card supports audio. I checked in some programs that I use for audio recording and the audio card within the graphics card is recognized as a valid source.
I would like to connect my PC to my HDTV so I can use it as a second monitor or play games. I would like to only use one cable so the most simple choice is to use a HDMI cable. However the graphics card only has a VGA, S-Video, and DVI outputs. I have read and heard that DVI does NOT support audio. I know that I can buy a DVI to HDMI converter. Will doing this magically allow audio to go into the HDMI cable? It seems kind of pointless to advertise that a card supports audio but there's no way to use it.
Thank you for your time and responses.
