    Hey everyone. I'm buying an xbox 360 tomorrow and I just had a thought. I have an old computer monitor. Its a Sony SDM S51.

    It has a VGA input. If I buy an xbox 360 and this cable

    will I be able to select 1024x768 as the resolution and 4:3 aspect ratio? Basically, I want it higher res then 480i. Will this work? Thanks very much for any help and sorry if I being noobish. =]

    Thank you Jah...I'm so Blessed
    You will get higher than 480i but you will be stuck at 480p....the tv highest res is 1024X768.
    The cable should be fine to output at that res.

    Well I got it today and it works PERFECTLY! It let me select the native resolution of the monitor (1024x768) so I now have HD gaming. I have just been playing Assasins Creed and Orange Box. :D Now to set up Xbox Live! Its awesome. Thanks for the help guys.
