If the monitor has an HDMI port but no speakers, it should have an audio output port (maybe marked as a headphone jack). I think then you'd need to feed that audio output to your PC's input, or get a y-adapter to combine them to your speakers. I've considered this myself in case the repair on my Gateway XHD3000 fails, which would mean I'd have to get a Dell 3008wfp to replace it. Unfortunately, my speakers only have 3.5mm male plugs, so I'd need a y-adapter with a female output, and I haven't found one.
Ok, I'd like help choosing a Full HD 22" monitor below £150 pounds.
I have been looking at these two LG's - which one would be better generally and for gaming and movies?
Im looking at contrast ratio and response time.
There is a £13 price difference and the main difference is that one is LED. Is it worth investing in this improving technology?
My GPU has spare DVI and HDMI outputs. (Its a HD 4850). I would want at least one HDMI input on the monitor which can be used for the PC for the time being and maybe a PS3 in the future (moving the PC to DVI).
There is also a viewsonic - slightly above budget - that may have better specs:
And Samsung which, I don't think is as good value:
