Sylvania TV Compatible Video Card

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I currently have a Sylvania LD320SS1 Flatscreen TV, which was not compatible with my old Geforce 8800 GT videocard. I made an entire thread about it HERE.

I am looking to spend a maximum of $130 on a video card that will be compatible with the TV, will be able to run a basic game like Starcraft 2, and will be able to have excellent graphics for a media center setup.

The computer itself is a Dell Dimension 8400, with a 350w power supply.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Major limitation will come from your PSU. I suspect that Dell PSU has low amperage on its +12V rail. Radeon HD5770/6770 might work in your Dell's system.

A possible problem with your TV is lack of HDCP support. Meaning you'll run into something we called "handshake" problem. Have you tried turning your TV first, followed by PC second?

This device can fix that problem,

The problem was with the videocard not the TV. After much research it seems that the 8800 gt series is known for problem properly detecting Flatscreen Tv's.

Also, since I am not very familiar with AMD/ATI videocards, what brands are reliable for these cards?

For AMD/ATI, go with Sapphire or ASUS (I prefer Sapphire).

Thank you for your help.
I went and bought the SAPPHIRE 100283-3L Radeon HD 5770.
