Default Monitor DVI/VGA converter?

Hey guys I'm putting this thread in a computer forum too but I have an Xbox one at home and I recently bought 2 Samsung monitors. These monitors only have a VGA and a DVI in the back of them. Since it has no hdmi, is there any way I can hook up my Xbox to these monitors? And I would enjoy if there was sound but if there's no option I wouldn't resist.

A HDMI to DVI cable will do it without sound possibly.

An HDMI to DVI cable is the best option, then all you need is sound, is there a headphone jack or Red/White audio output jack?

If so then these could be used for the audio.

Here is a good start for the cable.

Do these monitors have built in speakers? Most do not and require a separate sound system with separate audio feeds. I presume your do not have speakers or elsee there would be a connection that carries audio.
