Default What do I need to get audio out via hdmi?

Will all HDMI cards support this? Will they include the necessary cables?

hdmi was builtin on the mobo on my laptop. i had to buy a separate hdmi cable. win 7 auto sensed the new video connection and cloned the display for me. i think i had some trouble getting the audio to switch. i had to tweak some settings in sound preferences in control panel. both audio and video are sent over hdmi.

I'm going to be upgrading to a gpu with hdmi and was really wondering mostly about whether or not I'll have to run an audio cable from my motherboard to the gpu? Will my motherboard need to support it?
