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

Go to Radio Shack and get a phono to 1/8" stereo adaptor.

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

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

Ahhhh thanks for clearing that up. I figured it had the RCA inputs on it.
