    Hey I got a stupid question . Its always been in the back of my head to hook my tv up to my pc for gaming . I had this Toshiba TheaterWide 57H94 for some time now and was wondering how it would look for pc gaming and is it even worth my troubles .. Also what type of connection should I use ? The tv Features a Hdmi port but my computer only has a dvi out . I would also need 25ft of cable so it would be cheaper if I could just hook it up to component inputs . If its not even worth it I wont even bother cause im happy with my 21inch lcd . Its just a thought :)

    They make a dvi to hdmi cable\connector and its cheap. However, 25 ft of cabling....good luck with that one.

    Ive my pc hooked up to this crappy 15inch monitor though here. Tower sits adjent. Now just behind the same wall im facing is my 42inch Plasma.

    I run a cable through the wall into the back of the cinema system. Anyhoo the point of this is when the family goes out i just pick up my wireless keyboard and mouse and walking into the rooms and game away.

    Basicly, leave your tower next to the projector and sit at your desk with your wireless.

    Stock up on batteries to
