PS3 + Monitor + TV + Speakers + Sky

Ok. I have searched on Google so I know there are several solutions to my following problem but I am STILL confused so would like some help please if possible.

I have just bought a BenQ FP241W monitor which supports all my Hi-Def needs including 1080p (although it doesn't have the 1:1 firmware which I am waiting to hear back from BenQ about which means there are problems with 1080p atm.).

Anyway, I have just connected my PS3 to it via the HDMI cable (I don't need a HDMI-DVI converter luckily as the monitor has a HDMI port). My monitor is also connected to my PC via the DVI cable. The problem is sound isn't getting outputted since my monitor is not connected to my sound system. My Logitech Z5500 5.1 speakers are connected to my Soundblaster X-Fi Fatal1ty card.

The reason I am not playing my PS3 on my TV is because my TV is shit but is good enough for me to watch Sky on!

How do I...
- connect my PS3 to my speakers?
- connect my speakers to my TV as well? (so I have my monitor, PS3 and my TV all connected to it)

If this is confusing then these two pictures should clear things up. The changes can be seen in blue. Forget the speaker to PC cable being red can't be bothered to change it to black.

----- Current Setup

----- How I want it to be

Thanks for any help.
