    My wife purchases movies online which she views on her screen but I for some reason, can't look at a movie on a pc screen so I would like to view the movies on my TV. I don't have any more available slots to install a PCI video card that can transfer my pc screen to my TV. What options do I have here for this please? Thanks.

    What connections does your video card and TV have? If your TV has component then you can use the VGA or DVI outout with an adapter to connect to component. If both have S-video then that is an option but offers much worse picture quality.

    And it only has VGA out? You can use that to connect to component (if your TV supports this).
