    I plan on getting Windows Vista shortly after it comes out. One
    concern I have thought is I've read how many monitors won't display
    HDTV. I am in the market for a new monitor so am considering this.
    One monitor I'm looking at is the Samsung 205BW. As well, I am
    considering the Dell E207WFP20. I want something widescreen, at least
    20 inches, so am open to any other suggestions. Another thing, I want
    something that has at least two DVI ports or one DVI port, one DVI-Sub
    port.
    What do I need to watch HDTV? I see the Samsung doesn't have a HDMI
    connector but it does have a HDCP compliant DVI connector so does that
    mean it would display HDTV from Vista? As well, can you get HDTV
    through a DVI-Sub connector as well? Do I need a special graphics
    card (HDCP compliant?) as well?

    Yes, it's the HDCP (copy-protection) that is the issue.

    I suppose that you will...
