I'm afraid it'd be the onboard that'd use that

Yes, you'll have to use the onboard video because once you insert a pci-e graphics card, it disables the onboard graphics.

I'm assuming you want to use your PC on a big 'ol TV? well, there are DVI to HDMI adapters out there.. I can't say for how well they work though.

Well... since DVI doesn't carry audio, and HDMI does, you'll probably get the video but no audio, unless it has an adapter to also plug in an optical cable or the like.
But since its all digital, it should work fine, I'm guessing
