Need for a separate sound card with Radeon 4890?

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?
