Over time my TV I use for my gaming is dieing. The screen has become too blurry to read text and stuff. A friend of mine came over to play me in some halo3 but I only had one control. We both went to bestbuy to pick up another control and while I was there I saw a cable that lets you use a VGA monitor. It was 40 bucks so I went ahead and grabbed it. Got back to the house and hooked up the 360 to the 21inch monitor I use for my gaming PC and since the 360 was now right next to the PC I ran the sound to the Line-In on the PC so I could have sound. I have to say that cable was worth 40 bucks. It's very close to a HD resolution or a high end PC graphics.
