Not sure, I can check when I get home. However, i would still like the option of just purchasing a cable opposed to hacking my current wiring system.

You could always contact Zotac and ask them for one (all things considering, that cable should have come with the card) sort of like the one that comes with the 9800GT,

I had the outputs of speakers and spdif, but I went into the bios and disabled onboard audio to try and troubleshoot...I can re-enable if need be.

So, I'm at a loss on what to do...any ideas on how to get my sound from my Geforce 8400 card via hdmi?
NVidia provides a separate HDMI driver which is not part of their video drivers. See if the Zotac website has it... if not I believe the Nvidia site does.

I ended up buying a cable that goes from the spdif in on the graphics card to the spdif out on the mobo. I was able to output my sound via spdif out then; however, there is still no HDMI option.

dzirkelb the reason that there isn't a HDMI option in the audio settings is that it sin't really HDMI audio. All it is is just plain old regular SPDIF passthrough that just happens to be passed over a HDMI cable.
