    Excuse my lack of knowledge but alot of post here on coming out of Gfx card with vga then making a custom cable to take u to scart etc.
    If i have a vga port on my plasma can i come out of gfx card and go VGA all the way and what picture quality should i expect compared to scart eg????

    Go VGA all the way!
    VGA is far superior than scart; the only reason you would ever go the scart route is if your TV didn't have a VGA or DVI input.

    VGA supports all the PC resolutions available on your graphics card (this includes High Definition); Scart is only standard definition and the picture will be poor quality.

    Hi

    As long as the cable you buried has at least three proper coaxial cables in there (preferably five), you should be OK.

    By the way, 15-Dsubs are an absolute b*tch to solder - truly awful. I'd recommend fitting BNC's to each end of your embedded cable, then buy a couple of VGA > BNC cables from any computer shop.
