  1. Ok, I have an hp 15" lcd monitor with 1024 by 768 res. What I want to do is run that but also my 20" lcd tv. The tv only has 800 by 600 res with an Svideo input. Is it possible to run both of these on one pc?

    If your video card has an S-video out and your TV has an S-video in, then it could be possible to do.

    I have a 17 inch LCD tv hooked onto mine. I was using an S-VID cable, but the vid quality was poor (and this was coming out of an ATI Radeon x800). I just went and got a 4 buck dvi to VGA connector and hooked it directly in.
