If I have an HDTV and use a HTPC, what kind of cable would I use from the video card to the HDTV? S-Video? If so, will S-Video provide the best picture?? Is there a better way to do it?

P.S. I did research this question on this forum but there is just so much data I could not weed through it all. Thx again!

No, you'll need a VGA to 5-wire BNC/RCA breakout cable. If your TV doesnt accept RGBHV signals, you'll need a standard VGA cable, with a RGB-Component transcoder, along with a component video cable.

You'll also need Powerstrip to force your VGA card into a resolution acceptable by your HDTV - normally variations of 480p, 540p, or 1080i.
