If I plan on using a Radeon 4890 for a HTPC that will be used for playing movies, as well as a gaming rig, do I really need a separate sound card since the Radeon has HDMI 7.1 audio output? Will this be good for gaming, or should I have audio being handled by a separate card from say Creative or Asus?

There is no need for a separate sound card since most motherboards have 7.1 integrated sound.
but what about using the Radeon 4890's audio output via the HDMI going into say an Onkyo receiver?
