Default My video card came with some stuff i'd like some info on

Hey everyone.

Some time ago (and i mean liek maybe near half a year) i bought me a Gigabyte Radeio x700 256MB AGP 8x. generally i have no issues with it and im quite happy about its performance. For only $150CAD, it was a steal and a major upgrade from my Saphire Radeon 9200, hehe.

But thats neither here nor there.

My inquiry is about the extra stuff it came with, other than the driver CD. This one specifically

Features DVI-I / D-sub / TV-OUT
Supports HDTV function and HDTV cable enclosed

(that says HDTV and TV, sorry my RAZR takes horrible close ups)

Knowing very little about this kind of stuff, can someone inform me of what im entitled to dow ith these?

those look like tv out jacks. what you can do is plug the monitor like plus into your video card, then use some A/V cables to connect the green/red/blue jacks to your A/V jacks on your tv. that way instead of using your monitor as a screen you can use your tv. I used something like this once to watch a movie i downloaded on my tv(picture was ok i guess)
