    So I've been interested in replacing both my monitors, they're fairly old, want to upgrade to IPS LED monitors. Here is the catch though, my main monitor has built in speakers and 2 HDMI in ports. From some searching I've done, that seems a bit harder to find than it used to, or I just suck at searching. Needless to say, I use the HDMI in and speakers with my PS3. Now sounds I can either re-route through my PC Speakers, but I was wondering if there was a fairly cheap HDMI in card for pc so that I could just plug in through that. Thanks!

    No there is not HDMI "in" for computers. But many monitors have HDMI and PCs have audio in. Or just get a speaker set for the PS3

    There are HDMI in for computers, but they add lag to the connection so playing fast paced games with them is a no go.

    Two HDMI connectors is rare these days, but monitors with DVI and HDMI are pretty common. Use the DVI for your computer and the HDMI for your PS3.

    Or, you could try a Auto sensing (or manual) HDMI switch.
    There are many different ones out there.
