I am thinking about purchasing a new Intel 20inch Imac. I was wondering is there any way I can also try to use this computer as a monitor for my XP box?

Thanks,

Not really, no.

What about a video converter box by feeding a signal in either from USB or Firewire?

If so the graphics would be so terrible that it wouldnt be able to show up on a 20'' screen properly (at least through USB) and no manufacturer would limit themselves to Firewire plus the liscensing fees. At least IMHO.
