Help a N00b with conecting PC to HDTV


Standard Member
Hi guys, want to hook up a media PC to my new TV, the TV is a Philips 42PFL5604H/12 And the GFX card is a GeForce® 260 GTX 896MB DDR3 Black Edition

Now Im quite clueless when it comes to this stuff, sooooo......

1) what connection will give me the best picture, Svideo, PC in(RGB), HDMI to DVI?

2) what settings do I have to change on the PC display setting? (Running windows 7)

Lots of the on line content I want to watch streams at HD 720p though DIVX web player in fire I just have to click "full screen" for it to be HD sexiness on the TV?

Thank you in advance for your help!

HDMI will give you the best picture, set your PC to run at 1080p which is the bet resolution of your TV and with online videos see if there is a HD option of the video you are watching (like on youtube) to get the best picture as just using fullscreen doesnt guarantee HD. :)
