Awhile back I decided to hook up a PS3 to one of my monitors. I failed to realize that they don't have built in speakers.. but I wanted my PS3 in the area of my PC setup because I figured I would never touch it (and I never did) unless it was close by, I actually sold it and made that paperweight kick rocks). In the future, how can I use audio for a console to speakerless monitor?

Buy speakers? What the hell kind of question is this? "If I want to eat my food on a plate but I don't have a plate how do I get a plate"

Buy external speakers...... or buy a monitor with speakers...... I have a monitor with speakers. They are acutally above average in the speaker catergory.

is that monitor plugged into your computer?

how does your computer distribute noises?

PS3 can output sound separately from HDMI - for a while I had mine running to my monitor via HDMI, but output sound to component, which I then ran to my speakers.

I knew these responses would flood in lol. Probably a dumb question oh well. I just figured, power cord, DVI to HDMI... wasn't sure how the sound would output. They weren't going through the HDMI. My sound system is in signature.

Like I said - PS3 is capable of outputting sound over a different channel from video. It can do video by HDMI and sound over component, letting you use any speakers you want.
