Default Need help

hey, so today I woke up and found my PC monitor dead, not working at all so I've decided to attempt to use my 26' Westinghouse HDTV 720p/1080i, as a monitor for now and What I've done was hooked up the easiest way I knew how and that was the S-Video cable from my 9600gt to the TV and I have picture but of course it looks horrible so basically what I want from you guys is to help me with what I'll need to buy to get the most out of this TV quality wise / resolution wise so I can play games / browse / stream music and movies as I was / did on my old monitor. thanks guys

what resolution is it outputting as? you might try a DVI or HDMI cable, because a standard s-video cable isn't capable of transmitting HD-Video
