Windows 7: Internet TV off of nvidia geforce 8500gt

Internet TV off of nvidia geforce 8500gt

I am looking for the best way to connect my nvidia geforce 8500gt card to a non-HDTV set in another room to transfer internet movies.

I believe my card has streaming ability and the internet is running off of Comcast
cable under Windows 7 32 bit. I also have the PC going to a hard wired router.

Can I simply run a cable from the graphics card to the other room and plug it into
the TV?

The TV is a Panasonic CT27D11 with either a S-video, component plugs, or standard
video input plugs. The graphics card has TV-out and HDTV out, or it has DVI, S-video, and VGA plugs (not sure input or output). The S-video plug on the graphics
card has some peculiar 7 pin plug which I hear needs an adaptor for standard cables.

If I don't hard wire this hookup, I'm not sure if it can be done through Comcast
and/or their DVR. I'm new to this technology, so please forgive my possible
confusion on what may be a simple hookup.

If your TV has HDMI and so does your graphics card, use that one. Otherwise, the 3 little cables, known as Audio-video-cables
