8800GTS - Converting DVI to HDMI??

This is probably a novice questions but I have this Asus video card (really an 8800GTS in disguise).

The card didn't come with a DVI to HDMI adaptor but I do have a spare one that I was planning on using to hook this up to a HDTV. I assume that this would work without a problem or does the video card have to be manufactured with something special enabled?

Also, I believe that HDMI normally will carry an audio signal but I assume it would only be video in this case and I'll have to run a cable between the audio outputs on the computer and the audio inputs on the back of the TV?
