Is it possible to hook up my Xbox 360 and PC through HDMI and output sound and video like that? I have a Radeon 7970, if that makes any difference.

You can use the HDMI to plug into your monitor, but as far as using it to display through your PC, I've never heard of that.

Oh, well then. No you cant use your PC to play the xbox through, well at least I've never heard of anything like that and I've had the xbox since it came out. Why do you want to do that anyway ?

I have to use a VGA cable for the xbox, and so I don't have a sound output. Is there a way I can have both the xbox and the PC attached to the same speakers?

Well the VGA cable has the red and white audio, you should buy some cheap turtle beach, or tritton headsets that are like 50-60 bucks and youll have sound. You can buy a red and white AC-3.5 mm audio adapter that you would be able to use the PC speakers with the headsets, radio shack, best buy, wal-mart, etc will have it. As far as running the sound simultaneously you wont be able to do that with a some kind of other adapter or splitter.

Can you give me a link to one such adapter? Thank you.

Something like this is what you would use to plug into the red and white and the VGA on the back of the xbox cable, and then plug it into your speakers.

I imagine that you are wanting to keep this as cheap as possible. But what I do is I have my xbox hooked up to this http://www.amazon.com/Avertv-Definition-Analog-Capture-...
and I play xbox through the recording program. And I haven't noticed any increase of input lag from switching from my tv. Now this rather impractical for you unless you want to record xbox gameplay.
