HDMI cables suck all the sound though them as well as the video, so that you cannot put the sound through your amp and speakers. I thinks it's VGA to VGA, but I've had a problem with this as my speakers are buzzing when I connect the vga up to the TV.
If you use the HDMI you can stop it selecting the sound through that from the playback devises settings.
If you are using Windows 7 right click the speaker icon on the taskbar and select playback device. (alternately go to control panel sound) make sure playback tab is selected, right click in the dialog and make sure both boxes are ticked for "Show disabled devices & Show Disconected devices" Then right click on HDMI output then select disable, this only disables the sound not the video. then right click on speakers and select set as default unless it is already selected as that, press apply and OK. You will now be able to have your video through the HDMI and the sound from the headphone socket plugged into your amp or mixer.
