Help with Video card to TV

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I want to connect my sig rig to my tv in my room so me and my gf can watch movies on it.

I've searched around and couldnt find an easy way to do this.

I need it to go from VGA/HDMI/DVI (Doesnt matter which one) to RCA (the yellow/red/white one)
I only need video I have audio covered.



If this is in the wrong place i'm sorry
