If the monitor does not have speakers then you'll need a seperate amp with a suitable connection and speakers.

Thanks for trying to help , the only thing that is there to connect to is the vga , it's not dvi , I got confused so I'm using the hdmi for the Xbox and just the vga left , thinking I'm not going to have sound playing the Xbox on it
VGA doesn't use sound so you have to use a different conenction

Don't suppose you happen to know if there's some sort of convertor I could plug into vga that could somhow get me sound or connect a set of speakers to ? Thanks
Your best bet would be to buy a cheap/decent set of 5.1 speakers with optical connectors then you can just spdif xbox to speakers and get the most out of the audio experience.

Your xbox will need to have an optical output though...
I have the same problem
