I finally decided that its time I replace my old ass Samsung SyncMaster 940BW with a brand new monitor(ASUS vh236h). I’ve decided to get the EVO monitor since I’ve heard so many positive opinions about it. I currently play my Xbox360 with my old LCD through a 3rd party Xbox360 VGA cable w/ adapters to use my headphones as well.
What I would like to know is, does playing through an HDMI cable still keep the input lag minimal (close to lag-less) or would I have to keep using my VGA cables?
Also, I understand that the EVO monitor(ASUS vh236h) has speakers that can be used to play the game’s sound. Would I be able to hook my headphones up to the monitor or HDMI cables like I did with the VGA cables or would I be stuck with using the crappy monitor speakers to hear any sound that’s outputted by the Xbox360?
Last question; would any old HDMI be good to use or do you receive a better quality picture with the more expensive and higher quality HDMI cables that they sell?
That’s all, thanks for any help!
