I have a decent graphics card (NVIDIA Quadro FX 580) on my Windows 7, 64 bit PC and want to use a HDTV as a monitor.

I tried using a DVI to HDMI cable but all the graphics have a ragged edge around them even with settings on both PC and HDTV set at highest resolution (1080 x 1920).

I heard of two possible solutions; use a DVI to VGA cable (as I don't need audio out the HDTV) or try the "Powerstrip" program.
What would be the best choice of these two to try if any?

This is not normal. I use a cheap laptop with an integrated card and the image is superb on my HDTV (I use a HDMI cable). Since you have a Quadro FX 580 you probably have many different output behind the card. Did you try to connect it directly with a HDMI cable? If the card doesn't have a HDMI output you probably have a displayport instead, so you could try a displayport-to-HDMI adapter maybe it will work better. I would advise against using VGA, or just use it as a last resort because it is likely to give an inferior image quality on a HDTV compared to displayport, DVI or HDMI.
