    Do you already have a 360 vga cable?

    I've not used mine for a while but I think that you get a mini gender changer with it, double sided female (first one in esq3585's pic) if that helps.

    Gender Changers allow you to connect cables of the same gender together
    Use a D type gender changer to join two cables together that have the same gender connector. These slimline gender changers are available in 2 row standard and 3 row high density formats. 2 row format for 9, 15 and 25 way. 3 row format for high density 15 way. Low profile design for space saving. Description refers to physical ports on the gender changers.
    M = Male pins
    F = Female holes

    Which of these does the end of your vga cable (on the monitor) look like?

    That pic I posted is wrong get the 15 way type, if you have a maplin neear you go in with your xbox lead and tell them what you want and they guys will be able to hook you up. :thumbsup:

    If the end of your monitors cable is male (pins) you can just get the official vga cable and use the female to female gender changer to mate to male to male (360 vga has a male end).

    Female

    Second one is similar to what comes with the vga cable.

    thanks rep 2 u both

    Once you have the official VGA cable it opens up all the cheap monitors that keep popping up like a 19"/20" widescreens for under £100. Perfect if you plan to sit at a desk to use it.
