Method 1: Before my 5.1 setup, I ran my component cable to my little portable TV near me.

Method 2: Another way I think is possible is to purchase a Y-adapter. The red and white end of your component cable goes onto the left side, while the right end of the adapter will fit into regular computer speakers.



I own this Y-adapter and it works well. It is connected to the onboard sound on the back of my motherboard. I am using it for my surround sound setup.

$8 at my locak RadioShack.

hey thanks. thing is. i already have a stereo system with aux ports and they'll accept the audio cables fine. but hte question is. will i be able to run an HDMI out of my ps3 to my monitor AND at the same time run the component cables out the ps3 to my stereo (provided i leave the yellow {video} cable in the component cables alone)

Yes, that should work without a problem. I am also doing a very similar setup to what you are planning. My PS3 is also running HDMI to DVI on my monitor and my sound is coming from the regular component cable to my receiver without a problem.
