    What kind of video inputs are on your video card?

    You should be able to buy a cable to convert the monitor output to either component video or S-video depending on your video card...look to see what you have for outputs.

    Re: hooking my tv to my computer

    Wait... what are you trying to get on your pc? TV out? Or Video In? I read it as the latter. I don't think your card has VIVO and you would therefore need a TV Tuner card or something similar.

    Use the DVI-VGA connector supplied with your card...

    S-video cable out and use the video card properties to send the signal to your television. Or, you could use a program like dscaler. It's quite simple.
