The Dell Optiplex 330 is the company's entry-level desktop computer, with a VGA (video graphics array) port for connecting an external monitor or TV as well as a line out jack for transmitting audio through a 3.5mm stereo cable. You can connect the Optiplex to an HDMI Sony TV, but you won't be using the HDMI port. Instead, Sony's high-definition TVs are also equipped with a D-sub jack, which accommodates the VGA cable for the Dell Optiplex. The Optiplex does not have an HDMI port. Sony sets also offer a 3.5mm audio input for hooking up PC sound.
