    Not sure if this is the correct forum for this...
    I would like to connect my ATI 3850 PC display card to my HDTV (Samsung LN32B460) as a secondary display.
    The adapters that came with the card are as follows...

    DVI-I Dual to VGA.
    S-Video to RCA.
    S-Video to RGB Component.

    The cable length required is 15-20 ft.

    The TV has a VGA input.

    The ATI 3850 is HDTV capable.
    I would like to use this capability.

    Which would be the best way - taking both cost and cable length restrictions into account - to make the connection?

    By the way, I have a Denon AVR-590 receiver that upconverts all incoming video signals. So the option exists to go through the Denon rather than direct to the TV.

    Thanks.

    In your case vga is the best choice, if your not using a digital signal that is! the hdtv-capability is when you use a digital signal, if you use vga this is not necessary. dont use s-video its crap...
    If your TV has a hdmi input you sholud use a dvi to hdmi adapter.
