I'm planning to connect my 8800 GT GPU to my Samsung TV so I can stream footy games on pc and watch them on the TV.

I was going to buy a DVI to HDMI lead but I understand that this cable doesn't carry sound. Whats the best way to transport sound from my sound card to the TV?

normally it's from the audio output on the sound card (normally a 3.5mm jack) to the audio input paired with the HDMI input on the TV, this could either be a 3.5mm input or 2 x phone (rca) inputs, if you post the make/model of the TV in question you may be able to get more specific help.

After looking at the picture, use HDMI IN/DVI IN which is HDMI 3 and the 3.5mm DVI IN (Audio) which if you look at the picture in between HDMI 2 and HDMI 3, the cable you'll need will probably be a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable which you should be able to get from Maplins or similar store.
