Well i have a set of x530's also, so you could just used the adapter that comes with them (the sound cables to, Red, White outs) I just use twist ties and hiding skillz to make it look clean and crisp. Good luck tho

Thing is..I am already using the x530's for my computer. I would have to somehow split it for my ps3.

And that def wouldn't work out well if I had my computer on at the same time and the sound gets all mixed up..

Thats a must!

I use HDMI for video and optical for sound because I don't want to buy a 1,000$ receiver for HDMI sound. The difference is minimal.
Dude, I am using a computer monitor lol.

I have 2, 5.1 setups in the same room. My computers, and then my TVs. Works fine for me. My room is pretty big tho.

O.o, I didn't even know computer monitors had HDMI.

I couldn't get mine to work right in true 5.1 with my Klipsch Promedia 5.1s, I had to use a receiver and speakers for home entertainment, not computer speakers.

Now, would you think I can use the HDMI for the video, and then use a really long composite just for the audio?

Or, is there a separate fiber optic output on the PS3?

I use it for true Dobly Digital surround with my X-530s and Xbox360. So far as I've read, it's the only way to get real surround audio. It has tons of connections in the back so it'll pretty much solve your audio needs for, um, everything. Well worth the money IMO. It even comes with an optical cable.

As long as you have a real fancy receiver, you don't need one of these. My receiver can the decode the crap out of anything.
