And yes you do get audio from DVI to HDMI - check ATI website especially the 3xxx series onwards, as the card already has HDMI on, it has audio chipset, and this is passed through the DVI-d also, and if a dvi-d to hdmi cable or convertor is used you can get sound.

Some of the ATI 2xxx cards also, and the x1950 pro gtx
What you are getting confused with is

AGP-Ati graphic cards - vast majority don't have sound cos the different manufacturers cut corners to save cash and don't implement this.

PCI-e (same Ati graphics chip versions) do have sound enabled - cos vast majority sold were this type.

On the last version ever made for AGP, 4670 chips, only one very expensive card had sound enabledthru HDMI port.

A DVi connection is digital vision signal, no sound.
A separate connector + lead from graphic card to M/board sound connector or a soundcard connector may be provided on some top end? graphic cards.
"- S/pdif connect to vga cards for hdmi output"

I'm amazed Win 8 runs on this system. I also read a while ago minimum support (everything fully functioning) is AMD 2core processor
