    I have recently bought a brand new LCD tv, and I would absolutely love being able to use it as an extra display using my imac.

    what plug works best to do this... my tv is compatible with:

    HDMI, RGB PC, S-Video, AV1/2, and Component 1/2

    when I say works best, I mean best picture quality.

    One like this, but you don't have to buy it from Apple. http://store.apple.com/us/product/MB570
