There are USB to DVI boxes and then all you would need is a DVI to HDMI cable which you can order from for about $3.50 + shipping.

Well is there a way to get it through just a USB, or VGA/SVGA cable?

I had an idea that it might be the cable that cant support it. If I got an SVGA cable, would it go up to the 1080?

A quick wiki search: Computer display standard - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia shows a chart with display standards names, etc.

As you can see, VGA goes to 640x480, SVGA goes to 800x600. So, you're not going to get 1080 out of a VGA connection/cable.
What you can do is buy something similar to this: Atlona*USB*to*HDMI*Converter*::*PC*to*TV*Converters*::*Audio*Video*Converters*::*Atlona*Technologies which will add an HDMI port through a USB port. However, the res. maxes out at 1600x1200 - meaning you won't get a full HD picture out of it; I haven't seen any USB to DVI/HDMI that will give you full HD.

Force Games to full Screen?
Hi, Whenever I play a game (usually the old ones) it's maximum screen resolution is 1024 x 768. My screen resolution is 1280 x 800. So when I play the game there is a black patch on the left and right of the screen, how do I stretch the game or force it to run in 1280 x 800?
