Seems the problem was that the HD4670 really wanted to control the audio and use only HDMI...for some weird ass reason. Because even if the HDMI cable was used and plugged into my monitor or would that have affected my audio?
I would say that the with the Auto setting the bios disabled the onboard when it detected the audio chip on the video card.

Also DVI and HDMI are identical spec-wise, only differences are the cable/connectors and HDMI can carry audio.
