Anyone have any cool ideas or pics for installing a plasma TV / computer setup? I was thinking about setting up a really big TV and have a computer connect to the same screen. Any ideas?

My tower is connected to my 52" Samsung. I use it for an ongoing project toward a full media center.

Just using a DVI connection right now, but will eventually be hooked up to surround sound as well.

Most mid to high end video cards come with HDMI out so the video is taken care of. Just have to look for a motherboard (which also may already have HDMI) that has surround sound out or get a good sound card. Some cool media box cases can be found here.

HDMI out to a projector to a screen.
Go as big as you like (within reason)

DVI works as well if you have it already.

Even had mine on VGA for a week before I could locate all my cables after shuffling the computers around.

They are outstanding if you spend a few bucks for a decent one.
I've read great reviews on the recent release by Epson.
