I do not have that graphics card, but I find that sometimes windows (depending on version) may need to be told to use the HDMI as audio

On winodws (XP anyway) this involves double clicking on the sound icon in the tray, going to options, properties, then changing the default audio device

I am not sure about Vista/7, but I think it is simelar steps for them aswell

If you're using the motherboard's onboard audio, look for a header on the board. If you're using an actual soundcard, look for a header on the card. Connect the cable between the audio header & the video card.
