    I have a 46" lcd hdtv and would like to output my hd files from my computer on the tv.

    However, my current video card can not output to a full 1080p, which is what I'd like to do.

    I would like the most bang for my buck however would prefer if possible to spend less than $200.

    Any suggestions that you can give will be greatly appreciated

    That seems to be for getting hdtv signals to your pc.

    I need to get 1080p or i video files shown on my hdtv.

    google is where I usually go to but thought I'd ask all you experts who might have tested out good cards

    look in the 7 series range. just a quick look, I found a HD ready one for 79 bucks. Make sure you pick one that fits your motherboard setup (ex: SLI, PCIe)

    *edit* forgot to mention, make sure your TV has the correct connections also.

    This is listed under their "Main Features":
    • Video output with RGB or YPbPr(Component)
    As I said........they didn't show 1080p anyway.

    i may be ignorant here but 1080p is 1920x1080 resolution. i have a cheap radeon diamond x300 pci-e card that i picked up on clearance for 40 bucks at office depot, reg 99.99 and through the ati media center was able to achieve that resolution, would that not be a 1080p picture, and btw i have it connected through vga.

    if so then wouldn't just about any new card be compatible for a 1080p picture.
