    Do I need additional speakers to hear audio out of this system?

    I know the motherboard has integrated audio but I am not sure if I need to add speakers in order to hear it or if the display comes with speaker integrated. I am planning to connect my system with a display port cable not hdmi not sure if display port carries audio.

    Main specs

    Asus P8Z77-V Premium w/Thunderbolt Intel Z77 (Socket 1155) DDR3 Motherboard [90-MIBIK0-G0EAY0KZ ]

    Intel Core i7-3770K 3.50GHz (Ivybridge) Socket LGA1155 Processor (77W) - Retail [BX80637I73770K]

    Dell Ultrasharp U3011 30" Widescreen LCD Monitor - Midnight Grey [U3011]

    If I do need external speakers I would like to get some 2.1s in the 100-200 price range I have searched the forums and the recommended logitech speakers along with the klipsch pro media are no longer available new in the UK.

    Only some monitors come with speakers built into them, but even on the ones that do, just about any pair of speakers will be a huge improvement in quality. I don't see any mention of speakers on that monitor's product page.
