    We're putting a Plasma display in our lobby and I plan on feeding it with a PC. Can sombody reccomend a good video card / cable combination. The cable will need to run about 20ft. Right now I'm leaning towards a Radeon 9800 and a DVI-D cable from Ram Electronics. Will this get the job done?

    That should do it.

    Make sure the DVI-D cable is guaranteed though. 20' is pretty long for DVI, but the low bandwidth requirements of plasma (1366x768 at 60hz or so at most) should be ok.

    The Radeon 9800 is a great choice.

    That's Gabriel. I figured it would work, but it's nice to have a second opinion.
