    XBox 360 connected to a tft monitor

    Is there a lead out there that lets you connect an xbox 360 directly to a monitor instead of connecting through the pc tower?

    Yep, the official VGA cable.

    They seems cheap at CeX.. ]link

    £2 delivered for a third party one or £7 for the official microsoft one.

    You need a male to female clip then.

    eBay is probably the best place to find them.

    sorry scrap that both ends are female...Is here anything out there for female to male?

    Maybe i'm wrong but i'm pretty sure the 360 doesn't have a standard VGA connection on the back so a cable with two VGA plugs on each end won't do. Has to be one with a male VGA (to go into the monitor) and one of the chunky 360 plugs (which goes in the back of the xbox)

    like this one:

    I have one on my FS FT thread;

    The price is of course negotiable, it was used for 4 or 5 days before I went back to using the TV (bigger screen). It comes with the cable, the gender changer so you can connect it to a male or female vga connection and the converter to change the two phono plugs into a 3.5mm jack.
