oh wow my sig is gone, i have a radeon x850 xt some googling revealed that the max resolution is over 2000 x 1500 so 1080p should be fine. And the reason im getting the 1080p sharp is because my dad is moving up to a bigger model and i can get that one for the same price as a similar size 720p in a store , or maybe even cheaper. I already asked around in the off topic section about the tv and they agreed sony samsung or sharp. This is the model sharp i'll be getting AQUOS widescreen lcd television | LC-32D62U
. Now as far as my other questions i think i will need a sound card with s/pdif out and that should take the signal to the home theater system i have, as well as either a dvi or dvi to HDMI cable that will go to the television. Would something like This
(although im not certain i'd want pci express x1) take the s/pdif signal to something like This
? so that i could run the television as my monior with the surround sound hooked up, and with a blu-ray drive off of newegg for 100 dollars play blue-ray movies. Although now that i think about it if i have to buy a sound card im spending almost as much as a blu-ray player it's self...hmm i'll have to think on that lol.
