Hooking the computer up to the tv got a new video card

Well I want to hook my computer up to the tv. Hopefully I can check email, surf CLSB, and get into some other multimedia funtions eventually. I have an xbox and vista so i can already stream videos, music, and pics to the tv.

I just went out and picked up a new video card though so i can directly connect the computer to the tv. Should be pretty nice. now hopefully all I'll need is a wireless keyboard. I'm running vista home pro.

They ask because you might be sadly disappointed with the results. CRT tv's will almost always have a much worse picture than your monitor, so it's almost worth it to simply buy a better or bigger monitor.

That won't do at all. Here, I'll do this for you. I'll give you my 21" monitor and swap out for the tv. Should be a much nicer picture for ya. I can drop it off tonight

Yeah. I'm worried the tv will be a little small. If that is the case I'll just buy some blackout blinds, a DLP projector, and a 12' screen for my wall.

Sad thing is I actually considered doing that.

I got the card and installed it. It works well with my TV. i can sit on my couch about 13 feet away, surf the web, and check my email. Just what I want. I'm going to hook it up to my tv using S-video so I can swap using PnP between my cable and my Computer.

I just need an S-video cable, a sweet wireless keyboard and mouse combo, and I have to figure out how to toggle between displays on the ATI card. This is going to be sweet.
