Default What is the best way to hook up my hdtv to my pc?

I've got a video card with the standard dvi out and s-video. My 32" lcd tv has an s-video in and HDMI port. I'm thinking that the best way to hook up the video card to the tv is through a DVI to HDMI cable. What would you guys suggest? Also, how should I go about hooking up my sound card to the tv?

Your tv should have a sound input. Simply get a rca two prong audio cable and you'll be set.
