Question xBox360 on PC Monitor?

Is it possible to plugin an xBox360 to my video card through s-video using this adapter:

http://cgi.ebay.com/S-Video-S-Video-...ayphotohosting

and then play the xbox360 and have it show up on the monitor?

Thanks!

Microsoft has VGA that you can buy. So instead of a cable that ends with the RCA composite, it ends with the VGA plug. You just plug it from the back of your Xbox 360 to the VGA port on your monitor. All you need to sort out is how you're going to connect your PC's speakers to the red and white composite plugs that are connected to the cable.

You can also buy boxes on eBay which you can plug the XBox into and it will give you a VGA output. My mates got one for his PS2 and loves it.

Take a loo.

Yeah, well basically you plug in the RCA composite plugs and just use a standard VGA cable and plug it in to the box and monitor. Might as well get that cable I said earlier and directly plug it in.
