Default Dell 24\" W/screen with PS2 or 360?

Hi

I've just ordered a new Dell 24" Wide Screen Monitor and was just wondering if it will be compatable with my PS2 and Xbox 360?

Thanks

if you get an xbox to vga cable you can use that to play your xbox on the monitor (then use the dvi cable to connect your pc>monitor)

not sure about the ps2 though

get component cables and use those. those are the rgb ones

the 24" has component, composite, svideo, vga & dvi.

I used my Dell 20" widescreen to play my 360 so it should be good to go. The only problem was that I didn't have sound because the monitor didn't have speakers. So if the 24" doesn't have them either (which I think is true) you'll need an extension for the audio component so that you can plug it into a stereo or some other audio system.

correct. you either need to have optical in for your computer (which is a little more rare) or just get a cable that will transform RCA to stereo mini (red & white to little headphone jack) and plug it into line-in on your comp.

I use my 360 on my 19" widescreen TFT, and use a "Headphone Jack to 2x RCA Female Phono" cable to connect from the xbox component cable to my AMP/Sound system...

only problem is that I use this amp for my PC too, so i have to keep switching audio cables if i want sound on my pc or xbox.. gets annoying as its hard to reach with my setup!
