    8800GTto HTV

    AS my next upgrade im thinking of buying aHDTV and using that as my monitor however im a bit confused as to how i would connect my gainward Bliss 512MB 8800GT to a HDTV. I have a cable that came with the card that has an s-video connection leading to 4 wires red green blue and yellow. Is this what i use and would that give me the best possible resolution? Any help or advice is welcome wincei dont know much about HDTVs

    Depends on the inputs of you HDTV really. Whats it got? Theres a number of ways to connect it up.

    Graphics->HDTV:
    1) DVI->DVI
    2) DVI->HDMI
    3) DVI->VGA

    Theres probably more options, but those are the best/most common.

    From the looks of those inputs you want to be connecting using a DVI-HDMI cable. Failing that just hook it up using VGA.

    Heres a DVI-HDMI cable:
    Computer hardware and software at amazing prices, available online from Scan Computers UK

    Beware that it won't carry sound though, only video. You'll need to hook the sound up separately
