forgot to add how would I connect my xbox 360 to dvi

I did some researching and found out you can buy hdmi to dvi adaptors aswell as cables. Does anyone know the difference cause the adaptors seem to cost more than a hdmi to dvi cable?

HDMI and DVI are the same electrical signals, just in a different shaped connector, and HDMI also transmits digital audio in the same cable.

So a HDMI-DVI cable and HDMI-DVI adapter are exactly the same thing, all they do is have the same wires hooked to one connector on one side and the other connector on the other.

All of those monitors you'll find are gonna be comparable to the next, it's not like any one uses any newer technology than the other one, and as far as using it on the 360 goes it's just where the input signal is coming from and doesn't change a thing. Unless you see them all lined up side by side with the exact same input signal you'll never know which you'll like better and even then you'll like one that someone else hates. This is why posting a question like "which of these things that all do the same thing is better" are a waste of everyones time and what review sites and Google are for, it all boils down to personal preference in the end.

Closed again, and don't remake it.
