    Hello,

    I'm basically in need of some help with my Acer S243HL HD monitor. For Christmas I am hoping to get a pair of ear force X31 gaming headphones for my XBOX 360. I have no problem with doing this, but I also do a bit of pc gaming. I have an acer S243HL HD monitor. It's hooked up to a computer with a gts 450 palit gpu. From the gpu I have the hdmi running to the monitor. In the past I have had problems trying to get sound to run through to my headphones instead of the built in speakers on the monitor to which I have had no luck. So I thought id post on here for any suggestions on how I could get my ear force x31's to work with my computer rig. Also if anyone feels they know of any better headsets than the x31's for the same price then that would also be appreciated.

    Thank you for any suggestions,

    Mike.

    In Windows you simply specify the PC's sound card as the default "Speaker" device rather than the HDMI from the video card, this is done under Sounds in the Control Panel.
