Nice edit.

Okay so you fail at using HDMI so your dumbass uses VGA? Please give away your TV and go back to using a CRT you fagstick. Sure VGA will probably look okay, but for the same price these days you can get HDMI/DVI and use the correct input for an HDTV. So not sure how that is ignorant. The OP asked what can be improved, I told him. Then you misunderstood what I wrote (sure it was fairly vague) and got all gay on me.

Either way I have proven you wrong, so I win, you lose. So please stfu you pathetic lonely emo dick.

hdmi out or bust it is the only way to go my 6860 does awesome with it. Also a note on the tv's 120hz is fail, try to get some more hz even over resolution 720 is not that bad, i would rather miss a few fly's than have a blurry picture in fast motion scenes.


On neo's post you can scale the desktop in the video card controller settings I had to downlaod a special program from nvidia to do it on my gforce 8800 gts but it finally did work for me.

Best Buy has 42" Insignia 720p 600Hz Plasma HDTV for $400. Select in-store [Store Locator] pick up to save on shipping, otherwise it's $70 to ship to home. Thanks Poseidon



Specs:

Resolution: 1024 x 768
Contrast Ratio: 1,000,000:1 Dynamic
Tuners: ATSC / QAM / NTSC
Refresh Rate: 600Hz
Inputs:
2 x HDMI Digital Audio/Video In Rear
2 x Component Video In Rear
1 x Composite Video In Rear
1 x PC Audio Rear

from the slick deals site marc posted this is a good deal more contrast better hz, alil less resolution only 2 hdmis but u only have the 360 and the pc right? You do know you can set up the tv as a seperate monitor so you can still work on your normal screen and stream **** over the hdmi to the TV right this is uber productive.

life is more fulfilling with http://slickdeals.net/

I research more now. Me no rush.

at the risk of complicating this to information overload, I guess I need to figure out what the important minimum requirements are... for instance, I need 3 hdmi inputs for the tv and at least 240htz. 40" is not as important, as our tv room is small and we're only 9' from the tv, so maybe a 32 or 37" would be sufficient. ect ect

tv- 3hdmi inputs, lcd, 240htz, ATSC digital tuner (just in case)

computer- power button, mice, 24hr tech line.... im lost on this one

Just stating the fact that there will be no audio passed over that. Although I believe they do make one that does allow audio to pass, but of course it will be more expensive.

Geez people wtf why compromise? Just get the right **** in the first place.

If your guna spend under $400 on a surround sound, don't bother getting one. Spend $100 more and get the bose 2.1 that will blow any cheap 5.1 out of the water or the klipsch 321, which is their version of the 2.1.

Also if you want to make a trip up to Knoxville, I use to work at the hhgregg and I got a few friends that'll give you the hook-up. Like a name brand Samsung 120hz for the Insignia(best buy knock-off) price.

Bose?? *cough*

My sound system will blow any shitty bose system out of the water. And I didn't even spend over 300.

Bose is all hype and marketing. It used to be good back in the day. IIRC, they still have one of the most powerful amplifiers ever created. Too bad its antique now.

Of course its marketing, but that doesn't deny the fact that its a quality product. You'd be ignorant to say its not.

A good receiver runs $300+ new, so Ill pull out the bullshit card now.
