i dont even have the speakers yet i ordering them friday just wanted to see if they will play with my xbox 360 if not i may go for a different style

Just checked the picture Imortal posted again, it is actually HDMI to HDMI/RCA not Optical. So you can use that, although it would be easier/simpler/cheaper to just plug them into your TV/Monitor if you can. I am not sure if the X-530's come with all the adapters you need, but I would assume they do.

As far as I am aware though, you should be looking at the connections on your TV/Monitor rather than the connections on the 360. You only use the audio-out dongles like what Imortal has if your display has no audio out options or doesn't support Optical connections whereas a 360 does.

Confusing topic lol.
