Now would I be able to hook the speakers up to the computer and have it play audio as well? I am concerned that once you plug in something via HDMI it only outputs both audio and video through that connection and no others. However I hope that is not the case. Thanks everyone.
I use my monitor and my LCD TV and I initially had to force it to output audio through my HDMI out, I would say you can choose your preferred output by going to control panel\sound and pick your PC soundcard as your device
