You'll need a special "cross" ethernet cable for a direct connection, but its much easier just to have them on the same network (via a router). Either way you'll be able to share music and video files, but your computer will have to have Windows Media Center.

here is an officially link to Xbox's answer on how to connect through media center:
alternately & preferably, have both PC & xbox on (on the same network).
If you open windows media player click on library them share my media.
Select your xbox from the sharing list of "PC's" & when you search on your xbox for music or videos there will now be a link for your PC in which it will open up yopur shared folder.

You can also do it wirelessly between you Xbox 360 and your computer, if they both have wireless adapters.
