If it doesn't have HDMI, and that is what you want to use to connect your computer to your TV then you won't have any luck...

You will either have to buy a motherboard that includes HDMI or buy the sata to HDMI port thingy (I've got one on my computer but I don't use it because of 2 reasons - My monitor is DVI not HDMI and I have onboard HDMI)

Some TV's have a vga port, I know my TV does and I have connected it up a few times.

Opps sorry, I think I might have made a mistake. Although the "sata to hdmi thingy" LOOKS like a hdmi port, I am not 100 percent sure it is one. I will have to double check in the morning with a HDMI cable.
