Yeah, it would. DVI to HDMI is great quality.

Look on ebay for ridiculously cheap cables. I just bought a 25 ft svga(with included 25ft 3.5mm audio) for 18 shipped.

I'm using DVI-to-HDMI on my 1080p 42" Toshiba and it looks great. Can't tell the difference between it and the direct HDMI passing 1080p from my PS3.

The only issue Ive had using dvi to hdmi is I lose sound.
I use the speakers on my tv and when using hdmi the audio isnt there.
I think the newer video cards have the capability to run the audio through the video card too.

Yeah a lot of ATI cards are featuring audio through HDMI, but I've never tried it myself. My motherboard has an optical out for digital audio, and I have a 5.1 home theater setup that I use, so I just run it straight to the receiver from the motherboard. Maybe there's some sort of adapter you can buy that will take the analog audio from your board and turn it into stereo outputs for a TV (red/white RCA)? Not sure if this exists. Or if your TV has a digital audio input and you have a digital audio output on your board (optical or coaxial), you could do that, too.

EDIT: Yup, they do make audio adapters to convert to analog RCA (red/white). Just search NewEgg for "audio adapter" and it will pop up.
