How can I move selection of vertices to a specific point/line.

I have a diagonal line of vertices, however I'd like to make them flat ( parallel to the x axis) if I select the group of vertices and move them it just moves them in a diagonal line, however I'd like to be able to set them all to a specific coordinate. I could go through them one by one, but this boring and slow and highly in efficient.

Basically how do I make a line of vertices from this:

the easiest solution I have found is:

-Make sure the object is an editable poly. -Select the vertices you would like to align. -scroll down to make planar and click X (or Y or Z) depending on the direction you would like to move the vertices in. this aligns the selected vertices. -now you can just set the coordinate

hope it helps
