    If the TV and the video card both have HDMI, that should carry both sound and video. That is the preferred method of connection these days. VGA will work, and for audio you will need a cord with a 1/8" stereo phone plug on one end and the correct plug/plugs for the TV audio input on the other end - it will be either the same phone plug or a pair of RCA plugs. Plug it into the line out jack on your motherboard.

    No, the whites are DVI. HDMI kind of looks like a USB jack.
