Hello,I have an older eMachine T1116
that I would like to dedicate to video from the internet on a 42" HDTV (Magnavox 42MF438B. The TV has no monitor input and reviews say it performs poorly as such but got good ratings for it's performance as TV/Video. The old T1116 is a spare and I'd like to use it to view video/movies (no gaming) from the internet.Because of it's age, I don't want to over-invest. Any hope? ...I'm non-tech so please speak slowly using small words. THANKS! -SloJoe

well your emachine is not old...its ancient. You have an AGP slot so you would need
to grab an ATI 3450 like the one linked below for $50 and run an HDMI cable from the card to your TV since it also has an HDMI port.
