I have a 32" Emerson LC320EM2F, i plan on using it as my monitor for my computer. I'm going to use HDMI for the video, but i'm confused about the resolution. Here's the graphics card i'm going to be using.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It says the max resolution is 2560 x 1600, will that fit on my TV? I want the video on the entire screen without it being poor quality. Also, will that put more stress on the graphics card? My motherboard has a HDMI port on it too, will it be better to use that, or what? Explain in good detail please, thanks.

P.S. This is my first build, i'm new to this.

I see the tv resolution is 1366 x 768. your tv could only display 1366x768 or lesser resolution.

Also, it says it's "Max" resolution is 2560 x 1600. Can't i just adjust it to 1366x768?

It means that while your graphics card is capable of displaying a maximum 2560x1600 resolution screen (regardless of screen size), your TV is only capable of displaying a maximum 1366x768 resolution (regardless of screen size).

Your graphics card should be able to display a resolution at or near your TVs maximum or native (preferred) resolution and it should (nearly) fit the entire screen. If it doesn't, there are option is the graphic card's control panel that will allow you to adjust the display size to fit the screen size.

Because the pixels are so huge, make sure you get a thick cable to carry all the light they need.

A TV on an HDMI port on your video card works exactly like a monitor with an HDMI port would. 1366x768 on a 32" TV is no different than if you had a 14" monitor with the same resolution. Just set your resolution in your OS to match the TV's and you're off to the races.

No not really... 1366x768 is pretty low resolution, don't expect things to look very good on the tv... Tv's are no where near as good as monitors. If you can I would recommend buying a monitor for your computer.

1366x768 might be acceptable on a 15-17inch monitor but on 32 inch it will be... well horrible.

You would plug your tv into the video card not into the motherboard. It might not be a big issue if all you plan to do is stream videos or something onto the tv but if you plan to use it for games and everyday use the TV is going to be very pixelated.
