Default Need Help With PC to TV

In January, we'll be moving to a condo that does not allow satellite. I'm a baseball fan and each year I subscribe to MLB.com and watch games on my PC. What I want to do, since satellite is out, is watch a ball game on a TV rather than my monitor. I'll be using cable for broadband connection. So, what do I need, have to do, etc. I've never even thought about doing something like this, but I have three months to get everything together.

Thanks in advance,

Bob

well depending on your video card and the back of your TV plugins you most likely could just use a HDMI cable but to be honest more information on what type of tv and PC would help.

Thanks, guys. I should have mentioned I haven't bought a TV as yet and, when I do, it will be the the 27"-32" and wall mounted. I'll also build a new computer system, and I'm leaning to either a GTX 670 or 680. Either of those cards should do what I want, and HDMI is a first requirement.

Thanks,

Bob
