    I already know that I need the VGA cable, Its just that I'm
    wondering about the sound. Is their some kind of special speaker
    system that will accept the 360's audio input cable?
    Or would I have to use Turtle beaches for the whole time?

    The VGA cable comes with a little adapter for the red and white audio cables.

    If your computer has built in speakers then the VGA cables should be able to plug into them if theyre its a standard headphone jack, otherwise you'll need an adapter to plug into external speakers

    I'd use the Turtle Beaches anyway :smile:.
    I just don't know if it will be as good as it would be on an HD TV.

    For Turtle beaches, you plug the adapter that comes with them onto the green headphone jack, then you need some like male to female adapters so you can plug the red and white audio cables into the male to female adapter, and then the red and white audio cables on the Turtle beaches into the other end of the adapter. Then the USB goes into one of the ports on the fron of the xbox, and it should all work.

    Theyre definately worth buying though, in games like CoD 4 and WaW if you can learn to use them properly, you can sound whore people and it makes you much better.
