Default Monitor problems/questions

I got a TV last year, and to be honest, all I did was open it, plug it in, and throw away the box. I didn't know hardly anything about it. It's a flat SCREEN, but not the type of lcd flat panel that everyone has now. So my question is, how can I tell if it's an HDTV? It's probably not, but you never know right...

2nd question - say it is not - I will be getting something like an evga or xfx 6600 GT (or GS) video card. Will this work if I send a cable from the TV to the computer? And will this be fuzzy?

3rd - say it IS - basically same thing, but it won't be fuzzy will it?

Last - say I do the opposite - get an lcd monitor with a tv tuner. Will watching TV on the monitor be fuzzy?

Basically I don't understand it a whole lot, so any help is appreciated.
