Depends on the TV. We have a LCD TV with a VGA and DVI connector on it. You might find a VGA->S-video cable somewhere.

If it's not a projector, lcd, or plasma tv; then it probably doesn't have a vga input. You will either need a special cable or a video card with TV-out.

Most LCDs now have VGA input. If not they will have DVI and you can just get a VGA - DVI adapter so yes that would work

lol, your a gamer and don't know??! lol j.k

If it is an older TV it will most likely have s-video or composite. Tell us the make and model of your video card and that will ease us in helping you out.
