Monitor:

Sound Card:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16829102189

My main goal is to hook both my Xbox 360 and PS3 to my monitor and use the speakers connected to my sound card. After doing extensive research, I figured out how to connect just the 360 or just the PS3 (thanks to the two HDMI ports on the monitor). However, I'm stumped on how to connect both at the same time.

What I can't seem to figure out is the sound. I currently plan to have a y-adapter connected to the line-in on my sound card and connect the A/V red and white plugs into that. The problem with that is I can only have one console plugged to that at a time and I would rather not have to switch out the wires for the respective console every time I wanted to play that console.

Is there a magical switch or box that would allow me to use the line-in on my sound card to connect both the 360 and PS3's audio plugs to it?

Thanks

Well I don't need to split HDMI as my computer has 2 HDMI ports. I just need to split the a/v cables. Do you know where I could find one of these boxes?

Ahhh Ok just what I was looking for but with just one small problem.

The build of the Stereo male to 2 Stereo female will not fit in my sound card due to the placement of my sound card in my tower. Do you know if the same connector exists but is built like the ones in your first link (with the wires)?
