unless you can set that resolution on the xbox (which I haven't heard of) no it will not

You monitor may be smart enough to recognize your xbox and automatically select the best settings.

And if you don't want to give up your dvi slot, just put your computer on the vga and your xbox on the dvi?

VGA or DVI, if you can connect it to your monitor then youl find that the monitor would automatically recognize the signal on the connector and tell you the best setting...

why not use an HDMI on a TV?

Monitors have a faster response time. You can get them at 2ms where tvs are like 5ms. Not a big deal for the average gamer, but can give you a slight edge for super competitive gamers.

I would say connect your computer with the vga and your xbox with the dvi(just get an adapter for hdmi to dvi)

2ms to 5ms difference? lmao, you're telling me you can tell the difference between the two? No human being I heard of can discern 3 ms time frame.

Times add up 3ms here 2ms there. I said the average gamer won't notice but the serious high end gamers will notice a slight difference. If you don't understand, don't believe me, or don't care, its not going to make me lose any sleep.

AntiZig, stop hating. If your not a top level gamer its ok, neither am I. But I follow it very closely, there is a reason they make and promote them with faster response times.

Like I said times ad up.

hahaha, ok, if you wish to believe the marketing propaganda blindly without wishing to understand that's your choice. No hating on my part.
