Just got a new TV yesterday. Its a LCD HDTV and has VGA S-Video some component composite and HDMI connections. My comp's video card eVGA 8600 GT has 2 DVI and an S-video output. Right now I've got the card hooked to a monitor using a VGA cable with a VGA-DVI adapter on the end. So basically its open game. I know HDMI is the best one. but without having HDMI on my vid card i would have to run a DVI cable to an HDMI adapter which would probably drop my signal (for lack of a thesaurus) So what configuration would you use? without spending a ton of cash on it.

If it were me...I'd use the setup that would give me the best video signal...for the reception level I am attuned to.

For me, that means I would not worry about HDMI, etc...but if you are concerned with such, the logical thing is to provided yourself the best possible video signal/viewing pleasure.
