Well if you have a High Definition Tv,

Quote:
If all you need to do is connect the monitor, make sure the video card in your computer has a DVI connector. DVI connectors are typically found on most HDTVs. While you can get a converter for the VGA connector on an existing video card, you won't get the same image quality if you spend a few dollars on a video card with DVI support. Screen resolution is limited to the maximum resolution of the HDTV, which is typcially 1920x1080. If the only thing you want to do is use an HDTV as a computer monitor, this is the only step required.
