Ya unless your manual states otherwise. If the card can support the resolution which it can, and the monitor can support it, I dont see why not. Most TVs wont go that high on VGA though so you got to use up one of your HDMI slots. One problem you might run into is if you dont have a compatible HDMI on your TV. If your TV has one HDMI port it is one that will look for auidio and video through the same cable, if that is the case you TV will squeal if your card doesnt have audio and video out through the HDMI. My tv has one HDMI for audio and video and one for just video only and stero audio next to it.

Yup use the one with the red and white audio next to it and you should be fine. PM me with the results. My cable will be here about friday. Good luck to you! I think I'm gonna get the combo drive myself. Let me know if its worth it please.

8800 series cards are provided with analog output. It comes with a dungle that breaksout to COMPONENT VIDEO OUTPUT. I have tested this option on my 8800GT. Same thing it plays 1080P for Blue Ray or HD DVD. The Analog connector is in between the 2 DVI output of 8800GT. I'm not sure with the GTX but it should have a similar feature.

If your HD TV is limited in HDMI inputs use the component inputs through the ANALOG output of your card. That is proven to play HD-DVD/Blue Ray at 1080P.

BTW its still pretty much impossible (complicated and expensive) to bring HD television programing into your PC for viewing etc, except over-the-air which is of course kind of a joke. Its all because the TV mogels have their DRM evilness running overtime, and you cant even get a card with an HDMI input (it would be really hard to work if you could). A while back I read about a special cable box you can rent to 'kinda' get this, but it has a lot of restrictions, is really expensive, doesnt always work, etc, not yet worth it?
