My current TV is working but I'm buying a larger model.  Is it possible to rig up a connection and use the redundant screen with a computer?

Should be no problem , if the TV has either HDMI, VGA, DVI inputs.

I run HDMI from my Video Card  to a Panasonic 42" Plasma TV , but you can use what ever is supported on the rear of the TV and what ever your Video Card has or Motherboard Ports.

Cables can be bought in most configuration to suit , mine is PC Video Card  - DVI out > to HDMI Input on Plasma TV.

Some tweaking on Video Card Settings to suit on running on large screens etc.
