TV - PC Purchase/Connectivity Q.


I am thinking about buying the Sony KDF60XS955.

I plan to buy the Geforce 6800 Ultra video card.

I am a hardcore gamer and would love to play PC Games & Xbox on my new tv. I do not know what is recommended/required to connect a PC to a TV.

According to the TV specs:

Dual Component Video Inputs

HDMI Interface

According to the Graphics Card Specs:

Dual Single-Link DVI Support

What kind of cables do I need and where do the connections go? There is no VGA adapter on this TV. So, does that mean it is not possible to hook up my pc to this tv or can I use an alternative input/output? I am looking for the highest quality display output. What is the recommended resolution for the PC? It is a highend PC capable of high resolution display.

Have I made a good choice with the TV I have selected? After hours at a retail store I thought this would be the best choice. Connecting my PC to the TV and playing Everquest2, Half-life2 and Halo2 on xbox is the most important. I welcome all feedback and if there is a better solution please let me know.

I also saw the Samsung LT-P468W 46" HDTV-ready LCD TV with 1920 x 1080 resolution. w/ rear-panel PC input: analog RGB (D-Sub 15-pin).

And the Samsung HL-P6163W 61" HDTV-ready rear-projection DLP TV. Resolution is only 1280 x 720. w/ w/ rear-panel PC input: analog RGB (D-Sub 15-pin).

Keep in mind that I want to use my PC for playing games only. I plan on buying a DVD player with UPconversion capabilities to watch movies. I also have digital cable with HD channels.

Thanks for taking the time to help me out.

Why would you only use your computer for games when a HTPC will crush almost every DVD player out there?

What are your ffdshow settings?

ZoomPlayer Pro

Or watching SDTV.



PDI Deluxe

How about PVR of SDTV?


And OTAHDTV: Cards

As for getting satellite and cable encrypted HDTV signals into the computer we all are out of luck untill some minds change a bit.

Oh, and don't forget the PowerStrip

This is just the tip of the iceberg, good luck and happy reading.
