AFAIK, the HD 4XXX series was able to carry audio over the PCI-E Bus, whereas nVidia introduced it much later.
I have to use an S/PDIF lead to get audio through the HDMI.
There are different versions of HDMI that support greater resolutions at higher refresh rates, 1.4 is the latest that supports 4096x2160 @24Hz/ 1920x1200 @60.
I think yours is probably 1.2, as 1.3 came out on the 5XXX series, which supports 1920x1200 @60Hz.
AFAIK, DVI currently supports a max res of 3840x2400 @17Hz, with Dual Link @33Hz.
They are both the same refresh rate at 1920x1200, unless you use Dual Link, which goes up to 120Hz.
Your card has support for 1920x1200 Single, and 2560x1600 Dual, so it'd only benefit you if you used multi-monitors.
Most monitors are 1080p or 1200p anyway.
At least that's my understanding of it.
