I've been preparing for the arrival of the Xbox 360


and I looked at CNET's reccomendations for Xbox 360


I also want a projection DLP that will be good for my PC gaming via DVI cable


will this TV fit the bill for PC gaming (via DVI at 1280x720), Xbox 360, watching DVDs with this DVD upscaler


Samsung DVD HD850(the DVD player I want to use, sorry cant post links yet)


Samsung HL-P5085W (pedistal version)


thanks for reading and feel free to flame since im a noob

sorry for the double post but I looked at that Hitachi you were talking about.


Can I hook up a comp to it through HDMI?


Is a PC with HDMI better than a PC with DVI?


how do I use the HDMI with a PC?

I have my PC hooked up through dvi to hdmi cable.

I have a nividia 5600, with the new drivers its a snap to hook it up with varied resolutions.


to my knowledge there are no video cards that support hdmi.

I bought my cable online for about 45 bucks can... probably could get better qualtiy but it does the trick.


highly recomend this tv.
