    I need some advice/expert knowledge on a few things. I recently bought a TV with vga ports to use as a new screen for my desktop, running a 8800GT. About two months of that and my card died, after three years of use. Is there any chance the tv could have caused the damage?
    I've now replaced the card with a Radeon 5770 and am back using an older monitor. If the tv is theoretically safe to use, can I dual screen using the monitor through vga (with adaptor), and the tv via hdmi?

    Really worried that I might end up frying another card, but if i don't use it I've got an essentially useles TV.
