    So, soon I am buying a new monitor and cheap soundbar for my new setup. the monitor has a VGA, HDMI(will be taken up by my Xbox) and a headphone jack. Now, since the soundbar is cheap it only has a USB and 3.5mm outputs. how would i connect my soundbar to my monitor or xbox so that sound would come out from the soundbar from my game that is on my Xbox? any help would be appreciated, thanks.

    Hi and welcome to TSG.
    Are you sure those are both outputs? What does it use for inputs?

    If the 3.5mm on the Soundbar is an input (it probably is and the Usb is for power) you should get sound by plugging it into the Monitor's headphone socket. If there are 2 3.5mm plugs use the Green one.
