I wouldn't recommend it unless you have a High-end TV....
But first you need a video card with a TV ouput on it. My GeForce4 has a S-Video out, and connected to my Philips TV, I have to drop the resolution down to 600x400....

Just the opposite. A standard TV will support 800x600 tops. Windows XP with the NVidia drivers will do it pretty easily. It's nice for games and movies, but not much else.

Aye. I have my entertainment center set up for just these purposes.
