Default Xbox 360 Connection to Computer

So.... I have an older computer at which I have added a graphics card which contains two DVI plugs, and added dual monitors. whats the easiest and cheapest way I can hook up my xbox, preferably by HDMI, to my dual monitors, and have it use both monitors. Although other ways not using HDMI I guess would be okay.

Any help woudl be greatly appreciated.

Consoles (at least 360, definitely) can't dual-screen. It's one of the benefits of PC gaming. Although I imagine you could clone the same screen... I'm guessing that's not really what you're after. It would just be the same image twice, instead of stretching across as you probably want.

Thanks, that is what I had heard, unfortunately.
