There is no reason why it shouldnt work i use my PS3 on my monitor all the time. What inputs do you have on your monitor and you said you bought an adapter but it did not work, can you please explain in more detail

Nope, you need HDMI connection for the PS3 to use a monitor, as it needs to transmit both video and audio.

Ignore last, I can't edit at work IE8 :(  ...

You can use a DVI-2-HDMI adpater, but pot luck if it will work. You may need a special one that also allows you to connect the headphone audio out so that the adapter transfer audio and video through the HDMI.
