AMD motherboard HTPC build question

I have a question I was looking at this ASUS A88XM-A and it has a HDMI output, will sound as well as video come from the HDMI port?

Yes, HDMI ports are able to output video AND audio.

Audio over HDMI yes, though you aren't limited to that. You can still run the other audio outs if need be.

Well I went to micro center today and picked up part of the build.. looks like they have real-time stock inventory I was unsure since the case I saw was not on the shelf but showing they had 2 in stock.. for the fun of it I did a pickup order and it showed 1 left so good to know..

Anyways I ended up getting a AMD A6 6400K with a MSI A55M-E33 FM2 mATX mobo

I will pick the rest up next week I figure a 120GB SSD and a 3 TB hard drive for the recordings.

Well btw the case I got is the nmediaPC 700B about to switch the LCD display in the front (came with just a fake HTPC logo) to a OLED display and I will be putting in a USB IR receiver

I did a test recording last night with my old WinTV HVR-1600 card I did a 30 min recording of jeopardy and it worked out fine.

it would be better when I can use my remote on it.
