Yes, almost every modern GPU with a HDMI output has the ability to play audio.

Typically the speakers on monitors though are pretty terrible, so don't expect the best quality.

Yep. Initially nVidia cards required you to connect a sound card to the video card via a passthrough cable to get sound out of the HDMI cable. I believe it was not until nVidia released the GTX 4xx series that their video card came with onboard audio processing.

AMD / ATI video cards had onboard audio processing since the release of the Radeon HD 2xxx series.
