But to enter sound into the computer you can use the sound card.
Here is a picture of a newer sound card
The basic connections are the red blue and green. The green one is connected to the speakers. The option of the xbox would be to get a cable with a banana at one end and what ever connection out put from the xbox. could be something like this
If there are ant more questions feel free to ask.

however i am now a little confused? will i need to connect this to my graphics card on the base unit and also my sound card? or does this connect directly to my pc monitor.. if it does connect directly to my monitor and does not include my base unit how do i get the sound? my monitor does not have built in speakers!

The cable you ant to purchse has a rca connector. This will not fit directly to the sound card. However This connection usually fits into a stereo system. So if you have one near the xbox you can see if you connect it there. This will probubly be the best sound unless you have a good sound system in you'r computer.
If you don't have sterio to connect it to then you will need a 3.5mm connector to fit into the sound card there are simple adapters. To hear the sound you need the computer running (even without a monitor connected)
The vga cable connector looks like it fits into the monitor directly and not to its cable or it needs to go into the PC but connecting that is not a simple.
I'm sorry I don't have time right now to search and find mybe a better cable.
Let me know what you found.

ahh ok i think im beging to understand how it will work.. the sound plugs on the xbox vga cable plug into an attachment that goes into my base units onboard sound! I do not have a stereo anymore just recently got rid of it. So i will need to go through my pc. my speakers will also be attached to the sound card to produce the sound. My grfx card has both vga and dvi jacks i have a converter to change vga to div or vise versa. I will use that and plug the VGA from the xbox cable into the DVI part of the gfx card and my monitor which is VGA will be attached directly to the VGA port on my gfx card then i need to run base unit and xbox.. but then how will the computer know which image to display?? base unit or xbox? if both ports on gfx card are used? will i need to play around with ati catalys settings?
I did some background search. The only thing is what you mentioned at the end. To connect the cable to the gfx card you need a gfx card that suppurts video in or you wont be able to connect cause the card wont support it. What is the model of you'r gfx card I'll see if I can get any info to help out. Or all that we are planning may not work.

It looks like we hit a dead end.
Good luck with the new tv.
