    Hi,

    Currently im looking at building a new PC and am looking at a new monitor.
    At the same time im looking at buying a new screen for my xbox360 to use in High def mode.

    Im not exactly bothered about it been a TV and wondered if there was a monitior i could have both a HD connector to the 360 and a connector to the PC?
    Just seeing if i could get two birds with one stone!

    You can get the Acer 19" Widescreen for about £180, an absolute steal. This'll run "HD" resolutions in lovely widescreen too. All you should have to do is get a VGA splitter, not sure how this works exactly but it should be simple.

    Buy the VGA cable for your Xbox 360, get a VGA splitter from sources that shouldn't be said... and just switch it over when you want to use each
