HDMI if you have that on the back of the video card as my pic up above shows. Or setup separate cables for sound to the sound inputs on the back of the TV.

Ok thanks for your help, I do have an HDMI so I'll get a HDMI to VGA, and that will work, correct?

NO, the VGA connection on the TV has NO sound. A HDMI cable from video card to HDMI on the TV HDMI input has sound.
HDMI cables are not that expensive. What is the distance between the computer to the TV length ? 6ft, 10ft, 15ft, 30ft ?

The distance from the TV - PC is about 1-2 ft. I will settle with A HDMI-HDMI then, I think I have one somewhere.

Thank you very much for your help!
