    Hi all,
    I just purchased a Toshiba widescreen HDTV (50H81), and was wondering if I needed anything new to plug my computer into it to play games. Specifically, is it possible to get the HD display (1080i) with my computer, or am I limited to the standard 480i resolution? Also, are there any video cards that may be better or worse for performing this function?
    Finally, and this may be off topic, but related to this on-topic question - any help with setting up the monitor on my Windows 98 system...drivers, or settings?
    Thanks for any help on this matter. I can't wait...it arrives next Wednesday!
