My monitor has an HDMI port.

HDMI is useless for video cards really. The whole point of HDMI is that it carries video and sound. DVI is pretty much the same thing as HDMI just without audio.

you'd hook it into your monitor
and use a converter to allow u to hook the sound into your speakers

Yeah man, I believe so. DVI is the way to go. The HDMI ports are for those monitors with the speakers built in (I think).
