It all depends. HDMI is still sending the sound as a digital signal, so your graphics card would not actually be doing any conversion between digital to analog. This means that your TV will be doing all of the necessary conversion.
Your TV may or may not do a better job of this than your sound card, but its hard to tell for sure. Although, it probably wont matter if you are using the TV speakers, as they are typically not be best in the world and small differences in signal will not be noticeable. If you have another set of speakers that you use I would use your sound card, its probably at least as good as what you would get through a graphics card + TV and you have less devices between your source and speaker, which is desirable in most situations. Also, you can try both configurations and see if one sounds better than the other... in the end, always trust your ears.
