What graphic card would be fine to connect my pc to hdtv ?
Hello, I want to connect my pc to my new led tv. tv is Sony Bravia 22" 22ex420 resolution - 1366x768 now, the tv has 2 hdmi ports, a vga for pc input & those red, blue ports. so, I just want a low-end graphic card just able to play hd movies & stuff on the tv. I don't want to play games on the pc.(i have a ps3 for that!!!) Currently the graphic card i'm using is Nvidia 7200 GS 256mb. its very old & doesn't work with the tv - i get a black screen.
I'm thinking of buying Nvidia Geforce 210. it has hdmi and vga ports, so connecting it wouldn't be a problem. & its real CHEAP!!!!
So plz suggest what kind of graphic card would be best for the tv.
now, my pc has: Pentium dual core processor (1.6 GHz) 1 Gb ram (I might grab a 2gb ram too while I'm buying the card) and the Psu power output is 450W (which i think is fine for most of the cards-low end)
plz plz plz reply soon!!!!!
& one more thing I'm not sure if my motherboard can support that PCI express 2.0 thing, I bought my pc back in 2007) what I'm asking here is are the cards backward compatible in case i dont have PCIe 2.0 ?????
& once again i don't want a high priced card, i just want it to able to run the tv without any problem thats it nothing more.
Pcie cards are backward compatible (Thank heavens). They just operate with the old bandwidth of the port. I think you should be fine for only movies, but I really don't know about requirements of playing movies from a comp to a TV.
