    I was wondering if there was a cable to hook my 360 up to my PC monitor using a DVI cable(I have a open DVI Slot on my monitor). Also would the sound come through the DVI cable or do I need something else?

    Or if you have a HDMI port you can buy a HDMI-DVI cable. Make sure your monitor supports HDCP though, because not all DVI monitors support it but its mandatory with HDMI.

    It supports it.
    Supports High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) to prevent transmission of non-encrypted high definition content

    Make sure it's a DVI-D to HDMI.
