Question about motherboards w/ HDMI

What is HDMI for on the mobo? Is it for the onboard graphics or the sound or what? I'm curious because I'm helping someone with a new build and he has a nice monitor with HDMI so he wants to make sure he can use it. I had thought that HDMI mattered just when it came to the video card and monitor but seeing it listed on the mobo has me confused.

  1. both.

    high definition multimedia input.

    Meaning both high quality sound and video in one.
  2. So if someone has a monitor with HDMI and a video card with HDMI, does the mobo need it as well or no?
