So now I am one of the many people that want a High Def Xbox to work with my lcd widescreen moniter.
(I don't accually own the moniter yet, so changing to a different one [if this doesn't have sync on green] shouldn't be a problem)
Here is my theoretical setup. My question would be, first: would this work, and second: is there a better way.
Widescreen (720p or 1080i [don't think the latter is possible with my moniter]) vga or dvi output, true high definition, good quality.
5.1 channel surround sound with digital coax or optical outputs.
I would like the goal to be accomplished with an external cable. An optical/digital coax output on the back of the xbox would be fine. I mainly want to be able to switch easily between vga/rgb/component
Spend less than $100(USD)
Modded with X3 CE chip, x3 bios (flashing a different one isn't a problem if I need to)
normal case, normal outputs no special av pack.
Lcd Widescreen -
WXGA display, max resolution 1440x900, vga and dvi inputs, sync on green unconfirmed.
Buy the Xbox HD AV Pack (with component out and optical audio) along with a component->vga simple cable (sync on green required)

component -> vga cable - http://www.ramelectronics.net/html/video-to-vga.html
total cost - 19.55+29.90=49.45+(s&h) [if I can't find a local retailer]
Is there a problem with this setup? And everything goes as planned is there a problem with some games looking green and other graphical problems?
