I think i would have to get a small t.v. and hook the computer up and 360 through that... it will be way more expensive

I use a dual input monitor (VGA and DVI) and pipe my computer through the DVI and pipe the XBox 360 through a VGA converter (You can buy them as official periphrials) and can switch between them pretty quick. It's not super ideal but it works.

I use a Samsung 204b, great flatpanel monitor.
