That last post couldn't be more wrong. DVI does carry audio. Your internal video card should have an spdif header on it which will connect from the internal audio card. This is true in almost all cases. I use a DVI to HDMI cable to get tomy TV, and it works perfectly with the setup mentioned above. Of course two years later, I would have bought a new computer. I just didn't want someone else to stumble over this and give up.
