I believe that I have discovered a miserable truth which may be a basic knowledge among the community. Here I seek your approval or disapproval for my findings. Lately, I became fascinated by 24" widescreen LCD monitors with a resolution of 1920 x 1200. This native resolution even tops what offered by the 47" HDTV (1920 x 1080) in the living room. I thought I can finally enjoy HD gaming on the 360 without concerning about the eyes watching over my shoulders. My recent discovery broke this dream but I still have to thank those users who lead me into it. Otherwise, it would be all too late until I discover things go terribly wrong. My Xbox 360 is the premium type before the 65 nm "Halo 3 edition", codenamed Falcon, was announced so it has no HDMI support. To connect it to a LCD monitor, a VGA connecter is used. Users on this forum looked down on it and I went to Wiki to check what VGA is made of. It said VGA was the display mode before we install Forceware or Catalyst, providing a maximum resolution of 640 x 480. I recall that and that is terrible to conceive. Then I type "Xbox 360 LCD" on Google and found IGN's guide two years ago. (http://gear.ign.com/articles/703/703073p2.html) The hardware mentioned still matches today's! The big thunder hit me when I read that VGA connecters can only provide resolutions this low even on HD LCD monitors! Heart broken, I will still buy that LCD monitor for PC gaming but the Xbox 360 has to remain next to the HDTV. Meaning I have to bargain with the rest of the family for its use. Shoot.
