Basically I was thinking of a HDMI cable to connect xbox to the monitor, but it doesnt have built in speakers, so how would i be able to get the sound? PS i'm on a budget

Short answer: You wouldn't. Longer answer is that if the monitor has some kind of audio passthrough option, that might be a viable solution, otherwise you might want to check Monoprice to see if they're still selling the VGA cable for the 360 and get that instead.
