Default PC to HDTV hardware?

Hi All,

A friend of mine is interested in hooking up his PC to his new HDTV. He said it's a 1080i model. I don't know anything about HDTV, but I was wondering, is this possible? If so, what hardware would he need to do it?

Currently he's using a PNY 7800GS AGP video card.

Any help would be appreciated, please let me know if you need any more information.

Hopefully this fits in this forum since I am assuming you need to buy special hardware to do this.

he needs to use...

Package Contents
Driver Disk
User Manual
S-Video Cable <This
Power Cable
DVI to VGA/D-sub Adapter

That should hook up to his HDTV from the card. it should have came with his card. That's how I'm pretty sure you hook it up, but I don't have an HDTV so I'm not exactly sure.

How big is his HDTV? This card has a maximum of what looks like 30 inches.
