Came across a BC 60gig PS3 at work and after trying it out, its fully operational. Was originally going to swap parts to fix my LYOD PS3. But anyways, I think I may put it on my desk to make room for the PS4 so I was thinking of using the hdmi cable to the monitor(no built in speakers) and using an optical cable to my soundcard. I have a Klipsch Pro Media 2.1 setup and wondering if this would work.

Based on experience I had to hook up a headset directly to the monitor just to have some audio. I think it would be better if you have a speaker to spare as I find it annoying to plug my speaker to pc and vice versa

Might try this. The splitter would in theory let you keep your PC hooked up to the speakers as well.

Optical out --> DAC --> 3.5mm splitter --> speakers
