Hey,

I have a XBOX and a screen (DELL U2311H) that supports 1080P but doesn't have a HDMI connection. However it has a DisplayPort connection.

So I was wondering if to buy a HDMI to DVI adapter, or to buy a HDMI to DisplayPort adapter.

Because the HDMI to DVI is much cheaper, but will I have the same quality?

I would just get a HDMI to DVI converter. They can go for as low as $2.64. http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10231&cs_id=1023104&p_id=2661&seq=1&format=2

Also you will need external speakers since the monitor does not have audio connection.

I found that Monoprice gives good to overdone quality cables for reasonable prices people want.
