Playing PC games on TV

How good is the TV for displaying PC game graphics? I have an Xbox and Alba TV and the picture/graphics are brilliant.

I presume this is what the TV out feature of the grahics card is used for? Would you also overcome the problem with high response rates of some TFTs?

Just imagine those big Rome Total War battles on a large TV screen :-)

I would probly think they were very blury.

Probly crud graphics just as they would be on a PS2.

I really cannot sit and play a PS2 because of the graphics its really slow and jerky,and the game programmers try to use a trail technique to fade out the all the bumps,of course it hardly works and gives the screen a cloudy affect.

Xbox graphics on a tele are not bad,but everything is out of proportion,and sound doesn't go in time with the picture.

You can indeed plug a S-Video cable from your TV-out port to your tele and see the screen as normal,but like i said it will probly be blury.

I prefer classical CRT's to TFT because they have a more colourfull picture,although to be honest the TFT's give a crisper picture.
