Windows 7: Getting my electronics to work simultaneously

Getting my electronics to work simultaneously


If this is not in the right forum I do apologize, please move it.

I am looking for help setting up my electronics to work together. I will post a link to each electronic device below. I have recently bought a new monitor and desktop. I have them on my desk and would like to hook up my Xbox 360 halo reach edition console to it. The problem is, my monitor does VGA, HDMI, and DVI. The xbox takes up the HDMI and the computer uses the VGA. Seems fine right? Nope this is where I get lost. The problem with my monitor is it has no built in speakers. I cant use USB speakers on the xbox. My request is if someone could figure out how I could hook up my xbox>computer>montior, preferably without sacrificing the quality of the video, and so that both the xbox and computer can run off the same speakers. I am not that output/input savy and I apologize if this is a simple fix. Sorry for the lengthy and confusing read.
