Default SLI video cards question

I was just wondering if it was possible to use an LCD HDTV as a monitor if I want to put two SLI video cards into my pc. Also, what video card should i plug the monitor into, and any other information that someone knows of and could point me to would be great.

Yes, but its resolution will probably be less than a computer monitor's.

Make sure that cards you are using has an output that the HDTV can use, like S-cable or whatever it has. Hook the HDTV to the output of the top card.

Significantly less. You can probably do some research, I'm not, and show the pixel dot pitch on an LCD computer mon. which is prob. like .19 or less and the pitch on that tV is goning to be at leat 2x that. I'm just guessing, but there is a difference in pitch for each media, and hense, the imitation in size of comp. monitors.
