Best way to connect an iMac to a Flat screen TV with the highest resolution?

Hi guys, I have an iMac i7 27" and I have a nice 32" flatscreen I'd love to use as a secondary monitor to watch videos while I'm doing other stuff on the imac screen.

What the best connector to achieve this with the highest resolution possible?

This is your best bet, Audio and Video in one cable.

thank you.

I don't need audio, just the image (I'm only using the TV as a secondary monitor)

so I just got de Mini DV adaptor and a HDMI cable (less than 20 bucks everything)

I was just about to start a thread about this so I think i'll hijack it if that's ok with you?

I want connect my 27" iMac i7 and was wondering if I get this to connect to my LCD panel, what is the highest resolution i'll be getting the tv? Will it display full 1080p? I know that the discription for the adapter says it will, but will the mini-dp port on the iMac output that much? THanks alot!!!

Walmart has one with a hdmi male end so you don't have to get two cables for future reference. 50.00 bux
