The 8800GT analog connector requires a breakaout cable that will enable you to use COMPONENT VIDEO CONNECTION TO YOUR TV.
Below is the instructions connections from BFG....Most of the 8800GT before use the same method.http://www2.bfgtech.com/CMDocs/BFGTech/HDTV_connection_flyer.pdf
Thanks for the reply leon2006.
So far all I've been able to find in breakout cables is male vga to female component which would require I get a component extension cable. Strangely the only component extension cable I can find online is a 25 foot one which costs more than I want to pay. I also found male vga to male component, so would I be able to go straight from the graphics card to the TV with that? My video card doesn't have a vga output but I do have dvi to vga adapters.
