    We need to know what kind of inputs your tv has to be able to answer this question.
    Are you trying to hook up through composite? HDMI? VGA?

    Knowing what type of CPU / RAM / HDD you have is completely irrelevant.

    What type of TV do you have? What type of connections does it have?
    One way or another, you will need a Mini-DVI to [something] adapter. Depending on how good of a connection your TV takes, we can tell you what cables you will need...

    [edit] oh, and this is something where you should really try to find the answer yourself first. It is not that difficult to find, using a simple google search...
