Default Need advices regarding HDMI cable!

Hey guys!

So I bought a BluRay player for my girlfriend and now I need to get her an HDMI cable since this thing does not come with any cables other than RCAs... Anyway, so yeah, she just got a Samsung 37" FullHD 1080P LCD TV and yeah, she actually uses the speakers on it... Anyway, I was looking at HDMI cables on NCIX.com but I can't really pick one ... There are soo many! I don't know which one would be right.

I found this one but is it possible that an HDMI cable is only for VIDEO rather than VIDEO & AUDIO?

ION Cables HDMI 10FT Super High Speed HDMI Digital Video Cable - Ion Cables - HDMI1.3-MM-10

Thanks guys!
