I have my 360 connected to my 19" widescreen monitor via VGA cable. No matter what resolution i set it at i get jaggy lines, it looks like every straight line has a bunch of little jaggies (pc gamers should know what i mean). Does anybody else have this problem? And is there anyway to fix it?

I had the same problem when I hooked it up to my LCD monitor using VGA cables. You're not the only one; it's probably only because you're using a monitor.

Fix?... I dunno. Try using a TV biggrin.gif

There is no Anti-Aliasing (AA) in Halo 3. With no AA non vertical and horizontal edges will look jaggy - stair step like. I'm guessing you are using and LCD monitor. LCD's make "jaggies" much more pronounced. CRT monitors do not.

Possible you have a 16:9 monitor and the 360 is putting out a 16:10 resolution that the monitor is scaling?

What is the native resolution of your monitor, and what resolution is the Xbox outputting? If your monitor's resolution is 1680x1050 (the most common resolution for that size), and your Xbox is outputting at 1280x720, your monitor will be (poorly) upscaling the image, and since Halo 3 has visible jaggies anyway, the problem will only be compounded.

Unfortunately the Xbox 360 doesn't play nice with non-16:9 widescreen monitors; people have been begging for 16:10 support for a long time, but to no avail. There are standalone scalers on the market that will intelligently convert your 720p image to 1050p, eliminating the first wave of jaggies, but unless you're made of money you're better off finding another monitor. Sorry for the bad news.
