360 hooked up to computer monitor?

anyone have any experience with this?

when i say hooked up, i mean, RCA component (W,R,Y) hooked up into the VGA port of the monitor.

do you think the picture will be good enough? do you think an LCD would have a good enough response time for video games?

Uhm, I have my 360 connected to my VGA monitor. All you need is the VGA cable.

No need to buy another box.

What size monitor do you have? Can you see everything alright with it? I've been thinking about getting a 19" widescreen for this same reason but I wasn't sure if id be able to see everything as well because of the size.

\daaaamn... $40 for a vga cable and some rca's? Buy the cables separate and spend less than 1/2 the money.

Microsoft makes an HDMI cable so you can hook a 360 up to a monitor with DVI capabilites. And they actually look pretty damn good.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

I'm using a 19inch widescreen. I've also used a 21 CRT, and it was great there as well.

Well, it's the Xbox 360 connector that makes it expensive, that, and it's sold by Microsoft.
