42" LCD TV as a monitor

I am going to buy a new computer and was wanting to make my 42" Phillips LCD 1080p HDTV my monitor. Is this possible, and what graphics card would I need?

  1. Well it really depends on the TV u have.....If your tv has a dvi input on the back any graphics card would work...but if you can only hook it up via s-video u need a card with an s-video out which is most cards now a days anyways
  2. My 42" Vizio

    Ati 4870 via HDMI, sound and video on same cable.
  3. If your TV has an HDMI input that you're not using that's a possibility as well. Are you planning on doing a lot of gaming with this new computer? It makes a huge difference on what card you need.
