Use a regular old HDMI cable, that'll give you the best picture. That's what I use, if you have an HDTV you should already have one lying around. If you have one of the older model 360s, buy this one instead http://www.xbox.com/en-US/hardware/x...60hdmiavcable/ of the one in your post.

Do you have an old 360 or a new one? The launch ones didn't have HDMI ports but the newer ones do have it. You can buy an HDMI cable on Amazon for about $5-$10 plus shipping.

Also even after getting and installing the cable you also have to change the Video Display on your 360.

The cheap cable I was referring to was HDMI cable. The early versions of 360's don't have HDMI output.

To get Hi-Definition on a launch 360 you will need to use Component cables. I found a set made by psyclone for about $10 + shipping.

Your local Gamestop might also have used Component cables for when people switched to HDMI.

They also sell new MadCatz Xbox 360 component cables online. I don't know if they readily have it in stock in there stores though.

The Gamestop/MadCatz is about $15 but if they have it in the store you wont have to pay for shipping.
