    40in LCD to pc cable?

    I just got a nice 40in sony lcd and hooked it up to my computer which looks great. I am trying to figure out what cable I need to hook the audio up. The tv as a single slot that fits a normal jack for a computer. I have a Intel D975XBXLKR Socket 775 Motherboard. what is the best cable/way i should hook up the audio? links would be a great help. Thanks

    You probably need a mini-mini cable. a 1M length may or may not do it so a 1.5M or 2M would be a better bet.

    Cardas HPI mini IC is a good starting point, but if you get a smaller company to build you a cable it won't cost much more and you'll get much better sound and very good build quality.
    places to look:
    blue jeans cable
    Soloz Audio
    Enigma Audio
    HTPC: Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe, A64 3800+ X2, 2gb G.Skill ZX DDR400 , MSI 6600GT, SB Audigy2zs Gamer, Seagate 160Gb SATAII, 2x 250GB WD SATAII, DVD-RW, Hauppauge WINTV-PVR-150, Sunbeam Nuuo 550w psu, Antec P180, ViewSonic N2750w 27" LCD HDTV, Freezer64 Pro & VF900 for cooling

    Some screens also have stereo 1/8 inputs, so he might need something more like 1/8" Stereo to 1/8" Stereo sheilded cable
