PC to TV (VGA is ok?)

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
The computer only has a vga port. Would vga to vga for a 40 inch tv look fine? It will be used to watch movies.

It should look okay if it's just for movies but you may not get a very good resolution. What's the max resolution the TV supports?

It's a 1080p tv, so 1920 x 1080.

It will look ok, but if you want better quality use a dvi to hdmi.

Nice, although I don't think you will get that resolution using a VGA cable. Not 100% sure though....

It will be used to watch movies with subtitles. I just want it to look okay. High definition is not a must.

VGA supports 2560x1600 which means it supports HD fine.

I bet it will look good, you can play with the NVIDIA control panel settings as well to pretty it up. Man, wish I had a big screen.....
