pc 2 tv (hdtv) ?

I want to buy one of these HDTV's and use it as a low rez PC monitor
for playing some PC games (low rez - 720p, etc.) I realize I will need
a new video card (the ATI HDTV wonder??) and then I will need an HDTV
that is compatable - I am wondering if the Sony Wega KV32HS510 will
work, with it's DVI input? Right now, I DO NOT have either the video
card nor the HDTV, so I am flexible. If anyone has a setup that
actually works (no overscan, no flicker, just real good PC output at
that lower rez (1280X720p ??), please indicate what your video card and
model of your TV is. If any special connectors or software is also
needed, please advise. I wonder if the DVI connector on these HDTV's
will actually work when connected to a PC without a lot of hiccups
(overscan, flicker, black borders, rolling ghosts, etc.) Any real-life
experience is welcome. littleberry

The HDTV Wonder is not a video board, it's a tuner and capture board. It
has nowhere to connect a monitor.

I'd go for one of their real HDTVs, the BRX series. The others will take
the signal and display an image but it will pretty much be downscaled to
SD.

As a general rule you'll have to use Powerstrip to do some tweaking to get
optimum performance./
