With a card like the 5850 that has HDMI and DVI outs.... is it best to connect your monitor to DVI and then the HDMI to your sound system?

DVI is a lossless format right?

DVI is fine to the monitor but you should be able to do HDMI to receiver and HDMI from receiver to monitor. Both options are viable and equal in quality.

hmmm one hdmi to receiver and then another hdmi from receiver to monitor...cool.

does this cause any lag since the signal has to go through the receiver and then to the monitor?

It shouldn't, if you already have the parts it can't hurt to try.
