    Connecting your PS5 to a computer monitor is a assignment relatively easy and simple to do. It doesn't take more than some minutes if you have the correct supplies needed. 

    Gaming on a monitor can offer benefits that a TV often doesn't. This is a fantastic option if you would like to play video games from the comfort of your desk. However, this might not be the option for you if you like to sit back and relax on the couch while you play.

    play the PS5 in a monitor offers competitive advantages depending on the type of screen you are using. I personally play on a monitor to increase refresh rates and faster response times. TVs have significantly slower response times ranging up to 30 ms. 

    With a monitor, you can get refresh rate times of up to 1ms at a fraction of the cost.

    Connecting PS5 to a monitor

    It really is as simple as I told you, as long as you have a monitor, an HDMI cable, and a PS5. Depending on your monitor inputs, you may need an HDMI adapter. Don't worry, these adapters are cheap and can be purchased at any electronics store. Connecting it to the monitor can be completed in 3 simple steps.

    1. Connect the HDMI cable to the PS5's HDMI port.

    2. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable to the HDMI input on the monitor.

    3. Turn on both devices and switch to the correct input on your monitor.

    If you're used to playing games on a TV, it might look a little different when you switch to your monitor. 

    Within your monitor settings, you should be able to change the visual setting around it to suit your needs. You might want to increase the contrast a little to make the gameplay more vibrant, increase the brightness. Depending on the games you play on PS5, these settings may vary.

    audio compatibilities

    Getting audio can be a little more difficult than configuring the screen. Regardless of your situation, there is an alternative solution depending on your needs.

    Built-in monitor speakers

    This might sound crazy, but some monitors come with built-in speakers. If this is the case for you, you will not need any further actions. The HDMI cable you connected to the monitor will control the audio if it has speakers. However, if you want superior sound, this might not be the option for you. If you plan on using a microphone for in-game chat, that won't work very well either. Your microphone will pick up the audio and your friends will be able to hear you. This can be very annoying and I advise against it.

    This is the option I prefer, as it allows the best audio experience . I think this is what most PS5 gamers also choose to do. If you have a headset, you should be ready to use audio. However, if you don't, you can buy one relatively cheaply at an electronics store. Depending on the style of the headset, it can be connected directly to the controller or to the console itself. Another suitable option if you don't want to deal with additional cables is a Bluetooth headset. While it may be the most comfortable option, it is not the most economical.

    Connecting External Speaker to PS5

    For best experience , this may be the best option for you. You can connect external speakers to the PS5 as easily as you can connect your monitor. 

    Depending on your speakers, audio lines you may need to buy an adapter, but overall, it's pretty simple to do. If you plan on playing multiplayer games while socializing with friends online, you can skip this option. 

    Connecting a microphone to the console while using external speakers is just asking for an annoying echo. The people you will be socializing with online will be able to hear everything that is happening in your game. However, if you plan on playing solo, this is a fantastic option.

    Final Thoughts

    Overall, connecting your PS5 to a monitor is a assignment relatively quick and simple . In all honesty, it shouldn't take more than a few minutes to do. 

    The benefits of playing on a monitor are significant and can improve your experience. While there may be some complications to overcome, they are all simple to resolve. I've been playing on a monitor for years and today I can't play on TV.

    Does the PS5 have a video port?

    Unfortunately no, but this can be fixed. If your monitor only has the video port option, you can buy an adapter for a reasonable price. They are super easy to install too.

    Where is the HDMI port on the PS5?

    It's located on the back of the console, just above the power inlet.

    Does the PS5 come with an HDMI cable?

    The console comes with an HDMI 2.1 cable straight out of the box. No need to go buy another one.
