  1. I had recently purchased a 360 cooler by pelican. A shoddy product and a bad decision on my part. The ports did not line up with the back of my xbox and i was disappointed. The one reason i had bought it was because it had a vga input port. I wanted to hook up an extra monitor to my 360. does anybody know of a way i can hook my xbox 360 to a computer monitor?

    Found this: Q. Can I use my computer monitor as my display for the Xbox 360?

    A. Yes, depending on the type of monitor you have. And you will likely be able to play games in high definition too. The Xbox 360 supports the following resolutions when using the VGA AV connector: 640×480, 848×480, 1024×768, 1280×720, 1280×768, 1280×1024, 1360×768, and 1920×1080. In order to use your monitor you will most likely need to purchase the Xbox 360 VGA HD Cable and connect it to your monitor’s VGA port. If you don’t have a free VGA port on your monitor, you will either need to switch back and forth or purchase a VGA switcher.

    Support for 1920×1080 was added during the Fall Dashboard Update in October 2006. There are many reports of some incompatibilities with various nominally 1080p displays including the Dell 2405.
