1. Does a DVI-to-HDMI cable carry audio ?
NO. DVI has no audio capability. You will need a separate audio cable to transmit sound, i.e. Red/white composite, TOSLink (optical), or coaxial.
HDMI cables do carry audio. 2. Do i need to spend a lot of money for an audio/video cable ?
Absolutely not. Test equipment may be able to differentiate between a $100 "monster" type cable and a $10 no-name cable but very few human ears can. There are many online sources for high-quality, low-cost cables such as monoprice.com
and others. Credit for questions 1 and 2 belong to tahoejeff
