Hi there! I'm trying to connect my PS3 to a monitor. However, the only input option on the monitor is RGB (the blue thing, not the three wires). How would I go about connecting a HDMI cable to this? Thanks!

This any good? HDMI to VGA adaptor

Blue thing?

I assume you mean VGA connector,

This is an analogue input.

HDMI id digital plus sound you would need to connect the sound output from the HDMI adaptor to some speakers

This cable is supposed to connect to a variety of TVs / monitors from

Thanks! Could do... Would this work for audio as well?

The box seems to have better reviews and is cheaper, so maybe that's the better option?

Yes box will work then you need a vga cable from box to monitor and 3.5 mm male to male cable from box to speaker or plug headphones into box.

Does that box definitely have a headphone slot? Doesn't say it does in the details...

Hover your mouse over the picture to expand it , you can see the socket nect to the VGA port

*Fruit Bat /\0/* "Hover your mouse over the picture to expand it, you can see the socket next to the VGA port" - if you are referring to my previous link, I don't think that it does. Isn't that where the thumb screws from the VGA cable go? To be honest, I had forgotten about sound in my previous thread - sorry. It may not be appropriate after all.
