malk Projectors are becoming more reasonable. You can get a good one for under £1000 now and I think the native resolution is either 800 by 600 or 1024 by 768. Sure it's never going to be as crisp as a crt but think of the gaming. That would be quite nice.

KuipeDogg Yeah you got the DVI(not hdmi) hook up on the 9600xt
and then get software ( POWER SCRIPT IS THE BEST)
that lets you set your size/res

check this out it shows some cool connector info

Vai0 Death, you are one smart fellow!

DeathONator I think it would work ok using your video card's S-video output; or I guess there are HDTV adapters for video cards too. The number of pixels on many TVs is less than 1920 x 1080, because the pixels are so much bigger (but you're not going to be watching the TV from under 3ft away so no big deal). But on a 72" widescreen, I really have no clue of the resolution or if it would work.

And TVs go more by "dots per inch" instead of dot pitch BTW. 72DP is pretty good.

Vai0 I was at a sears the other day, and i saw a 72inch Plasma, Widescreen, HDTV for like 10000000000000$. It would be KICK ASS to have the computer show up on that. Even though i know its probably un-relestic considering the number of pixels. But damn it would be cool!

DeathONator No, never played ANY video games on a wide screen or anything. I've watched some peeps play w/ a big ass projected image from a projector. Damn those things are expencive. My grandma just got a nice plasma TV, but I haven't even seen it. I guess it's a nice one though. I don't see how you could spend that much on a TV though .

KuipeDogg I geuss eh...sucks for people not in the know then i geuss

ever played ps2 on widescreen....its wierd

graphics are the same more or less...but all the menus and stuff is worse
cause its decoded from different files that they spend less time on

DeathONator Not exatly sure. Maybe because you can watch TV on them w/ no other hooks ups, just attenna? And they have more jacks. Any speakers on 'em? And they are probably more sleek than a computer LCD. Might also be that if someone really wants a small LCD TV, they are willing to pay more than someone who wants a computer LCD.
