    Monitors for gaming
    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.

    We are all members here...so you get no special treatment!

    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.

    i do not recommend Lg monitors , the quality is not good , the image is not as sharp as its should be and the lifespan is shorter that any other makers
