I'm in the market to buy an HDTV (Panasonic 47WX49/51 or the Toshiba 40H81)
First off, what do I need as far as hardware is concerned?
I have an Asus AGP V7700 deluxe GC, should I upgrade to one of the many Geforce 4 Ti 500 cards? or something in addition to my current GC?
Should I possibly look at another HDTV then the two I've previously stated? And how is the quality of the picture on any HDTV from a PC?
And finally, should I just stick with the regular monitor (please say no)
thanks,
phil

If that model has the VGA input (which I believe it does) you just need a connecting cable between the 2. I will warn you that to take full advantage you'd need a video card that supports 16:9

You should stick with a computer monitor, as the stationary image of the desktop will burn in on a RPTV.
