Advice…
Well make sure you configure the graphics card so it will display the images on the second monitor. As hooking you HDTV to your pc via hdmi. I whouldn’t reccomend it. S-VIDEO is clear and much simpler to hook up. If I remember right you have to buy a lot of compents to hook it up. It isn’t as simple as S-video. You cant just hook it up with out some. Problems. You got to find out if your HDMI is a male or a female and buy coverters and extra cables. It is kinda funky. So if you have a s-video slot on your hd. Just buy a Monster (brand) s-video cable. Thats what I use and I haven’t had any probelms with it. If you are looking into playing games on that HD. You probably whould have to buy a new graphics card that could support that the HD has. If you are looking for movies. You should just buy a HD-DVD or Blu-Ray player.

sale. Sony, NEC, ViewSonic Depends how much you are willing to pay for what brand of monitor you are looking for and what size, as rule of thumb you can buy 20" monitor for $200-$250 depending on or Samsung are reliable and quality brand for LCD monitor.
