Hey guys.

I'm new to the forums so first and foremost, hello!

So here's my question, I have recently been consdering the option of getting a new "24 iMac to replace my broken PC, and I wondered if I could use the iMac to play my Xbox 360 through, as my TV as broken as well. Perfect timing, eh?

You can use a VGA cable to play your xbox through a standard PC monitor, but I wondered if this could be with an iMac as everything is all in the display. Any ideas?

QUOTE Thanks

I heard of some kind of thing that plugs into a firewire or USB connection that will act as a video in. Otherwise, I am going to say nope. iMacs only do video out. There is no VGA port like standalone LCD monitors.
