    I want to know if the existing Imac can be output to TV for watching Videos and stuff.

    I know appletv exists, but I want a direct monitor output.
    as I know you can add an extra monitor

    yes

    yip this can be done.

    It depends on what type of tv you have, and wether or not it has a DVI or a VGA pc input.

    Most modern tvs come with a cable to connect it to your computer, but as with most of the world it is incompatible with Macs. You will need to buy a Apple cable that connects from mini-DVI or micro-DVI (depending on your Mac) to VGA or DVI.

    You can also use the same thing if it only has S-composite video

    I have set my iMac 24" 2.8GHz up with a 40" Sony BRAVIA.
