I don't think PCs had HDMI back then unless you went high-end (thereby nullifying the whole idea of saving money) and many didn't have DVI. Most AV se-up would not accept VGA/DVI either. Audio would have probably been optical at best that couldn't have carried anything above AC3/DTS, unless you had an audiocard that had onboard 7.1 decoder that had separate phono outputs for each channel which again, puts you in high-end territory.
It wouldn't have been impossible, just a bit of a crap solution.
