So this isn't apple specific in any way, but I need some help and its computer related and I'm a member here.
So i need to buy a new monitor and I've been looking at ones with HDMI slots so i can plug my xbox in too.

LG 21.5" Widescreen LCD Monitor With 2ms Response Time (W2253V) - Black - Future Shop

Thats the monitor I'm thinking of getting and it has an HDMI slot, but my worry is about audio. If anyone uses a monitor for gaming, maybe they can tell me if the monitor provides audio, or if not, how they get audio for gaming.

Most folks (who are serious about their sound) use external speakers for gaming or anything else. I don't think I've seen a computer monitor that has decent speakers...or at least speakers that are better than even low cost external speakers.
