Most newer graphics cards have an S-out port.

The resolution won't be great, but it will be big...

If you wanna just completely replace your monitor. You just need to plug in the projector to the VGA or DVI port on your video card. You'll need a projector that can handle HDTV if you want to go higher than 800x600 resolution.

If you wanna keep your monitor and have the projector too. Just get a video card with dual video outs. Plug monitor into one, and the projector into the other.
