    So I have the Radeon 9600XT graphics card it can do these resolutions:

    and has these connectors: 15-pin D-sub (HD-15) DVI TV-out.

    I am going to be getting a new plasma which will have a native resolution of 1080p (true HD with no upscaling or BS like that) I was hoping to get one with this connector on the back.

    I know typically computer games on TV's are pretty bad, but what about this combination of a good graphics card to a 1080p tv via a direct digital connection? (i usually run at 1280 x 1024) anyone done this?

    you'd have to have a card capable of running your games at 1920x1080 and not be slow, which is the real challenge. It would have to be a high end card, geforce 7800GT or better. Most cards have DVI out on the back, and most newer HD tv's have HDMI, so you'd also need DVI to HDMI cable (they do make them) to hook the 2 of them up.
