There is an HDMI port on the video card.

Yeah there's generally either a mini-HDMI or full HDMI port on the video card. If you have an old computer it might not have an HDMI output though, in which case you'd need something like this to convert DVI to HDMI.

If you do it via hdmi/dvi then you don't have sound so also need to sort audio out to TV, stereo or whatever your computer may use.

HDMI can carry sound to the HDTV actually.

carlstar is correct, while HDMI can carry sound if you use DVI -> HDMI you lose audio and need to transmit via different means such as RCA.
