"I will appreaciate any advice": I could help, If only I could understand what you are trying to achieve.

From what you said, It sounds like you want to connect an Xbox360 to the PC's Graphics Card.

Thanks for your reply, Iwant to buy an XBOX360
Elite. But from what I can find out they have a
Scart Lead to connect to a TV.also an HDMI lead
for HD. a computer does not have these, so where do I connect a XBOX360Elite? or any other Console.
I am sorry I did not make this clear. I am 78years of age so get mixed up sometimes.I hope you can help me to understand how to start Gaming.

Have you changed your name.

Will you be connecting the xbox360 to a TV or Monitor.

As standard, The Xbox 360 Elite comes with an HDMI Cable like this click here=

Also a Multi AV Cable is supplied like click here for Y, Pr, Pb phono connectors and composite video phono connectors.

To connect to a VGA (Computer) Monitor you will need to buy one of these click here as they are not standard supplied equipment.

Plus a Scart adaptor that connects to the composite video phono connectors.

Thanks for the advice, I use a 22 inch LCD Monitor
that has a VGA & DVI connections from the PC
I use the DVI for the PC so I assume I could also use the VGA for the Games Console using one of the adaptors you showed me (as long as I don't try to use both PC & Games at the same time.
Though I am not sure if the PHONO would connect to the XBOX360, as there are no PHONO connections on the Monitor or the PC?. jackthelad71.

I noticed that the reveiw by Spudboy on the
GameSeek advert for the connector cable, he mentions an XBOX Phono Adaptor with 360?.
