Hi,

 

 I have a HDMI cable, a HDMI to DVI converter but i only connect it to my pc. I'm wondering if I can connect my PS3 to my monitor. My monitor input is VGA.

You can buy cables which convert from HDMI to VGA but they'll only carry the picture and not the sound, unless your monitor has sound input sockets as well

 

I'm not sure though if you'll be able to watch Blu-Rays like that though due to the security measures employed by BD discs to prevent copying.

 

To be fair you should buy a new monitor as 24" ones with HDMI sockets can now be bought for less than £150

Re: How to connect my ps3 to pc monitor.

I have a 24" monitor but it doesn't have HDMI. It is 1080p HD but I can't do a thing with him without HDMI. Thanks for the answer. I have another question. If I'm having headphones with mic but are USB can I connect it to my PS3 and use the mic too?

If the headphones are generic and don't require any drivers yes

 

I used to have an old pair of PC USB headphones with a mic and they worked great on the PS3. Playign Rainbow Six Vegas 2 by actually telling my squad what to do was lots of fun

 

The girlfriend thought it was weird though, me sat in the lounge shouting "Stack up!", "You are weapons free" & "Frag and clear!" at the TV

I'm not entirely sure why you've brought up component cables?
