Second Monitor Help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi!

I've been wanting to get a second monitor connected to my rig now solely for having the internet, a video/stream, or any extra windows I need open. The problem I'm having is I can't figure out how to go about this. My dad has this old maybe 10-13 inch 4:3 little TV, but it can only accept input from S-Video (Red yellow white), however, and my gpu only outputs in 2 DVI, 1 DP, or 1 HDMI. Is there any way I can possibly convert these connections to DVI or DP or HDMI? Which connection do I need to use to have a second monitor can I have one that is hdmi and the other DVI per say?


Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

In short, no.
And you're not missing anything, image quality would be horrible.

I'm not worried about image quality, I really just want it so I can have a second webpage open while playing games, working, etc. I'd there really nothing to convert those types?
