I'm going to get an HDTV, as both a tv and a pc monitor and I'm bringing my pc to the store tomorrow to try it out.
I've already tried a little bit, I just want to check out gaming on it etc.

Aaaaanyways... Is there any way I can use a HDTV to watch my dvd movies, like say "the lord of the rings" etc, that will get a better result than just watching it on an old SDTV ?

Thanks for any help you can give me...

Any HDTV will have better image quality with a DVD movie than an old tube SDTV because of the native resolution. HDTV is automatically upscaling the image, plus it is displaying the image progressively (smooth edges). Standard CRT (Tube) TV displays the image in interlaced, which means you will get jagged edges and not a fluid movie.

Also, if you can connect a DVD player to an HDTV via component, DVI or HDMI, you are going to get a higher image quality than your standard SDTV.
