    I would like to know how one would go about connecting a computer to a TV via composite RGB cables. Something like this...

    Everything I have read about connecting to a TV with such a cable says that the gpu has to be 'TV out' enabled.

    So I guess my question would be: which graphics cards can I connect to a TV to via ^that^ cable?


    Reason I ask is that my plasma doesnt have HDMI in and VGA in doesnt work very well. :(

    The last cards to support that feature were the GTX 200 or HD 4000 cards. Everything since then has had HDMI or DP.

    It's because of HDCP.
