    May or may not have been asked , wanted to experience HD on my PC. I have a 19" tft with a vga and dvi input. Im using the dvi connection between the Pc so the vga is free for the Xbox 360. Only problem is how do i get sound my pc only has the traditional pink,green&blue 2.5mm jack sockets on it. Any answers please short of buying a new telly?

    get a phono to stereo converter lead and run it thru the line in of your pc.

    or simply a pair of pc speakers instead of the pc
