Default building a computer question

is it really feesable to connect a desktop tower to your TV? would i need multiple excellent gpu's for it to work, or could i just use like an S-video cable or something along those lines and not lose too much resolution?

You can use a Radeon 5770's HDMI output. You don't need anything special. If you were recording TV, that is a different matter.

If you did plan on recording TV, Newegg sells DVR cards with PCI-E interface. It'd be an awkward setup, but it would work. Here's a link: - AVerMedia AVerTV HD DVR MTVHDDVRR PCI-Express x1 Interface
AMD FX-8350 Black Edition
ATI Radeon R9 280 x2 Crossfire
ASUS Sabertooth 990FX
Corsair Vengeance 1866MHz 2x8GB
EVGA Supernova 850 G2
Corsair H80i
Cooler Master HAF 932
