now correct me if im wrong i dont know much about all this fancy hdtv stuff but VGA is the same thing as what come out of the video card on a PC so  i could be a cheap ass and use my lcd monitor to get a taste for hdtv and if its the shit i could buy a  hdtv also is there a switch similar to a av  switcher so i could have x360 and my pc and not have to crawl under a desk and unscrew stuff from the back of a monitor

Of course you can use your monitor, that's the great thing about it. VGA is a standard connection and as long as everything matches, there's no problem. By things matching, I mean resolution, frequency, etc. The 360 will output 1280x720 @ 60Hz. Pretty much any decent monitor can hande that. Most can also handle 1080i. It will be widescreen don't forget, so you will get borders, unless your LCD is a widescreen model.

VGA switcboxes are available pretty cheaply. Electronic/Computer shops usually carry them.

Yeah, like watching a DVD movie, as it's running in widescreen, so too will the 360.

Unless you have an old LCD monitor that doesn't let you force it not to stretch the image to fill the screen. So a 1280x720 image becomes 1280x1024. I hope all xbox360 have a letterbox option for us with 4:3 screens.

Is the Xbox 360 going to come with a VGA output cable?

They should put a DVI connector on it!

Can someone please help me. Does anyone know if the Monster cable component jack I have for my Xbox will work on the new one? Will I have to buy a new component jack? MY tv supports 420p and 1080i. Will I not be able to get 720p games in Hi-Def?
