    I am currently running my Xbox on a crappy 14" portable TV, but I just reliased that I have a 19" Iiyama PC monitor (with 2xVGA inputs) with one input going spare.

    Is there a VGA option on the Xbox?

    I have seen a generic VGA converter, but I not expecting something like that to give a paricularly good display.

    Is there a VGA cable for an Xbox?

    I assume you are talking about this product. I haven't seen any specific commercial cable for VGA.

    The box looks alright, I can't see why you wouldn't get a decent output.

    Groundy will be able to help you out more, perhaps even make suggestions for a custom cable.

    An XBOX VGA Cable can apparently be made. However, the schematics are hard to come by and I've found little or no information regarding this. It was Museumsteve who first alerted me about it so perhaps he has more information.
