Even my computer / graphics illiterate was in awe, he said "That is throw!"

Here the link to the one i got. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...9796&rd=1&rd=1

and here are several of the same things he is selling http://video-games.search.ebay.com/_...ZsmartQ5fbuy88

I'm pretty sure we can link to eBay in here, it's just in the for sale forum right?

Oh yeah and like noshibby said, sending your audio through your nice PC speakers is also way better. Hearing the 360 on my friends x-230 2.1 logitech speakers was awesome compared to our TVs. And i have the same speakers!
Thanks for that link! MUCH cheaper
Hmm...

Yeah I too first played my 360 on a normal TV until recently. I just never thought it was worth paying near a thousand bucks for a normal sized (27") LCD/Plasma monitor. Now prices have dropped and I bought

this Westinghouse 42" monitor. It was actually cheaper on my base's PX (about 900$) than buying it from newegg. Man I don't know why I never got one of these before. The 1080p/resolution sure makes a big difference! Although my wife hates it because both my 360 and my computer are hooked up to it and she thought it was going to be a "family" TV

Yeah Whats nice about the HD on the 360 is now you will be able to read the text on dead rising >,>

Yes, anything lower than 42" doesn't do the 360 justice.

Here's an early pic I took of PGR3 and my 50" Panny plasma.

Hey noshibby & Dezixn, could you guys help me out with how you are getting your 360's audio to run through your PC's Soundcard? I tried looking, but solid information is hard to find; most people just want the simpler connections.

I bought a VGA HD A/V connector that I will be hooking up to my 22" monitor, but for the sound I will have to plug the L and R audio jacks into my receiver which will bypass my PC. Since my soundcard, X-Fi Xtreme Gamer, doesn't have female left and right audio in's, what all should I go about doing?

so here's the million dollar question: is a 360 on an LCD monitor better than a high end PC? i guess you'd have to have a demanding next-gen game like DiRT for both platforms and play them back to back to really be able to tell.

The best mix is having them on a dual monitor setup , best of both worlds.

I don't know if that would help, because my soundcard only has connections for four outputs, as in speakers, headphones etc., I don't know how to input sound into it, as in from the 360 so it would go through the card. Any ideas?


Would I be able to run the left and right audio into a splitter and then plug that jack into the "Flexijack" on the soundcard? On Newegg is says the card has an input, and the flexijack is the only outlet not labeled "output".
