Ok so i have a 29" CRT TV. I was thinking of connecting my Radeon 5750 to it via a VGA to composite connector. At what max resolution will it run at? will it be Ok to game on it? Sorry if this is the wrong forum.
Ok what about a DVI to composite converter? Can i directly connect the card to the TV using it without a signal converter?Originally Posted by Ken1649;15210156
Yes, same with 5750 max VGA output is 2048x1536 but the composite max is limited to 640×480 in 16 colors and going lower into higher colors.

I could live with that because on my 15" monitor the refresh rate is 60Hz. For relaxing on the bed and playing on the TV with the 360 controller will the TV make do, 'coz i hate the 15 incher. The TV is a Samsung Plano 29" CRTOriginally Posted by Blameless;15210578
The TV itself is likely going to be the limiting factor, not the component connection. I would not expect more than 800x600 out of any CRT TV. There are some professional CRT displays that look like TVs that can do higher, but they cost a fortune, and chances are that if it has a TV tuner, it's not one of these.
Nearly all CRT TVs are 50 or 60Hz.
