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.

You can go with component cables
