Anyways I was wondering if anyone could help me out with suggestions

My PC has

Video card: Mobile Intel 945GM Express Chipset Family

which includes
IntelĀ® Graphics Media Accelerator 950

The following plugs are available

* 4 USB 2.0 ports
* 1 FireWire
* 1 VGA monitor port
* 1 S-Video port for connecting to a TV
* 1 PCMCIA (or PC Card) slot (Type I/II, 32-bit)
* 1 ExpressCard/54 Slot (also supports ExpressCard/34)
* 1 headphone jack
* 1 microphone jack
* 1 Expansion Port 2 connector
* 1 IR receiver

My TV is a Toshiba 32HL57

& has the following
2 Colorstream HD
2 HDMI
1 Regular A/V Cable input (Red, White, Yellow + S-video)
1 VGA PC IN (With Red-White audio inputs)


However, VGA doesn't look so great and its now used for my DC

Currently My TV has all cable inputs used up except for

1 Colorstream HD
and the 1 Regular A/V Cable input (Red, White, Yellow + S-video)


So I'd perfer to make use of those.

Of course any suggestions would be great.

What is my best solution to get the best picture possible.

You can find VGA to component convertors out there. That may be your only shot for high resolution. I've got a component to VGA convertor, so I can watch my DirecTV on a computer monitor. Should be doable in reverse.

you'd be better off getting a video card that supports component video out than finding and using a vga to component converter box.
