Well, no one has answered you so I'll tell you what I use. I have my HTPC using a 9800gt and I run it to my 42" Samsung plasma. I use an HDMI/DVI in order to support HD. However, I'm only an occasional gamer, more a movie buff here and HD is my top priority...but i'm guessing that gaming would follow the same principal?

Video Cable - <b>HDMI/DVI</b>

Hook up is extremely simple, just plug and play with mine...I'm using Vista 32bit. I used Nvidia Control Panel to manipulate the picture size to fit the plasma after setting the display to 1920x1200.

Did that resolve your issue? What are you planning on using as your connection? HDMI?

I was gonna get a freaking 50 inch Bravia for 500 bucks, but my parents didn't want to buy it. >_< It was such an amazing deal, and I told my parents that we're not gonna see a great deal like this again, but now we're still looking for an HDTV

My 52" Samsung L52A550 rocks.
