    What kind do you need? RCA, S-Video, VGA, or DVI? Those are order from worst to best image quality.

    You need to see what the TV and the laptop support. You can buy the cables cheap off the internet or local stores, just avoid the big box stores which tend to over price cables.

    You won't find a single desktop drive that big - not yet anyway.

    RAM you can buy off the internet, I suggest looking at www.crucial.com

    Well the WD 1TB drive is fully assembled, ready to use, and gives you the 1TB you were looking for.

    There's always a chance it may not work, thats why sometimes paying extra from a retailer that tests the memory is a better choice.

    If its faulty you can return it, if its incompatible you can return it too - but you may have to pay shipping and restocking fees.
