Hey all, I'm new to this forum, as you can see.
I'll be leaving for college in about a year, so it's time to start planning my dorm room, lol. Really though, I gotta know about how much $$ I'm gonna need to save up.
My main mission right now is to find a way that I can use my computer monitor to also double as my TV. I'll be getting a CRT for sure, my budget won't be humongous. I'm planning on probably 19-21". I'm just not sure what hardware I'd need to do this. I'm sure its an easy dilemna, but car audio is my field as far as hardware goes. I plan on converting that car audio hobby into computers though, because my car's system would probably get stolen in a flash in a college town. Not to mention my major will be CIS so it couldn't hurt
. I've been an avid computer user since I was like 7, but I've never gotten too deep into hardware.
I plan on buying a system from tigerdirect, as they seem to deliver the best bang for your buck. Unless of course, systemax systems inherently suck?
Anyway, if you could guide me as to what hardware I'd need to have my computer monitor double as a TV, I'd appreciate it. (Is it just a TV-out on a video card? If so, I'd feel silly, lol.) It would also be nice if I could plug in a PS2 or something though. Not sure exactly what a TV-out will do for me.
