How do i make my computer monitor a tv to play xbox, music, etc?

I have a SyncMaster 930b Samsung monitor that I want to use as my Tv but im not sure how to hook up my xbox360 to the monitor or dvd player and use it just like an ordinary TV. Awhile back i had a friend who hooked his TV up to his computer, so i dont see why you cant do the opposite of that, tv through monitor. so does any one know how to do this?? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    You would need an adapter.

    Google "Xbox to VGA"

    VGA is a standard plug type to a monitor.

    with some monitors you can go with a HDMI cable too.

    why would you want to hook up a dvd player if most computers these days can play Dvd's?
