someone i know wants to get a VGA adaptor so he can play xbox on his computer monitor because he told me that computer monitor pictures look better then hi res tvs and then went on about how computer monitors are up to 10gp now (i dont know what that means either). Im hoping the answer is no. And i would just as naturally assume the answer is no because common monitors are cheap. And how come when you change the picture resolution on a computer, the screen zooms in or out. Like, why is a higher pixel number more zoomed out and why cant you have more pixels like 1600x1200 but keep the 800x600. If you put the screen resolution on 1600x1200 would watching movies on it make it look any better. Do computers work differently when your dealing with picture quality or what. Im just very confused. My Terminator 2 dvd says on the back something about if you watch it on your computer using Windows Media 9 you can get a high definition picture. Well what's different there then if you just watched it on your computer period, or any dvd for that matter. Do the monitor's size have anything to do with they're picture quality. Do the cords going from the CPU to the monitor have anything to do with it, like my dad's flat panel has that blue cord goin from the cpu to the back of the screen and the manual said it was a digital something or other, does that make his screen quality better then mine? last question, what is HTPC?
