Ok so I recently built a new system and have been using my old 17in crt monitor, but I would like to set up a complete media system(dvd, digital cable, music...etc). So I would like to connect the pc up to my 26in LCD tv which has a DVI input. Is my current Radeon 9550se video card sufficeint for the task or should I upgrade tosomething better?? Who makes the better media video card, ATI or Nvidia?? Ive heard ATI is the better choice since it uses Avivo?? Can you guys please give your opinions?? Im looking to spend up to $150.
Um, you are on a TH forum. Go to the TH main page and look for it. It's listed on the main page.
Oh yeah, I agree with that, but he is trying to display his computer screen on his TV.
Well, again, I don't know that much about it, but what he is actually trying to do is use his HD tv as a monitor. That, to me, is a bit different than displaying his computer on a TV. If the sole purpose is to just display the TV, then that ATI card will work fine. If he wants to decode HD stuff and run in high res, he'll probably need a bigger/better card.
