Default 42" Monitor

Alright well, I have a 42" LCD JVC tv and I know it can be used as a monitor through hdmi, but what graphics card would you recommend for my new build. I also want it to support dual monitors for when I want to watch my tv and be on the computer at the same time.

Thanks

BeasT

What are you using the build for / what are the rest of the specs?

...How much can you spend?

All graphics cards can output to a TV...and support dual monitors pretty much....

Umm...if you can spend as much as you like...get the 9800GX2...comes out in March.

If you want something now, maybe the HD 38700 X2, or if you can't spend that much, the 8800GT.
