I'm looking into buying an LCD HDTV for my room and hook it up to my computer (to play games, watch movies, etc.). My graphics card (XFX 9800 GTX) has two DVI outputs and an S-Video(ish) port. It comes with a DVI to HDMI adapter, and a rgb connector that plugs into the S-Video(ish) port.
From what I hear, the best resolution you can get with the DVI to HDMI adapter is 1080i, not 1080p. I would like to take advantage of full 1080p resolution if I invest into buying a TV, so I would like to be able to watch movies/play games in 1080p. Since the HDMI adapter is a no go for 1080p, would I be able to achieve 1080p resolution with the rgb? How about a DVI to VGA adapter? (the TV has a VGA input). I know that with these two options, I would have to run a separate cable for sound (since DVI and VGA only carry video) but I will probably be using my PC's speakers anyway, because they're much better than a TV's.
