Do you have one of the new slim xbox's or an old one.

If you have a new one you can run an optical cable to your pc sound card in( I do not know your sound card but it sounds flash so it should have an optical in)

If you have an old one then you will need to get the audio break out dongle.

Both of those suggestions are assuming that your monitor has no would pass through

The ST2010 doesn't have built-in speakers. Either running it through the soundcard, or getting a standalone headphone amplifier (probably cost $200ish for a reasonable one) is your best bet if you don't have an old receiver or stereo amp laying around.

I use a "Maverick Audio: Tube-Magic D1" and it is as the name says, magic. Can plug almost anything into it. The "Tube" part of it is a bit of a gimmick and basically useless to me as it's for the pre-out only (whu!?), but the rest is fantastic.
