Default Video Card and Plasma TV

What video card would I want to to play some big time games on my 42" plasma TV? Would i be able to stretch the Desktop screen to 16:9 and still have it look good?

yeah, but keep in mind Plasma's don't support the best resolutions. I know the marketing promo's push them to be the "best" tv's, but they're just a step in the evolution.

Just go S-vid out (on your card) to svid on your TV. Then in your cards advanced properties you should have a tab that sets it up. Just don't be disapointed when it doesn't look like you thought it would. When LCD TV's get bigger and cheaper, you'll get what you want.
