Hi guy's, I was wondering if there was a cheap set up out there or adapter I could buy that would allow me to use my TV as a 3rd monitor, It's SDTV so I think the res is 4:9 480p? If I'm not mistaken. Thanks to those that can help.

We need specific model numbers, or at least we need to know what inputs your TV has. We also need to know what monitor support your computer offers.

I think I found a solution I have a Gateway LX6810-01 (I think Have to double check the sticker later on) I found this little Adapter That I can hook into my VGA and into my Video input via my TV. It's just a old SD magnavox the only ports I see on it are RWY, and I could always just use my computers speakers since I have them so close together already have them close together, on the other hand. I'm already running dual Monitors one is DVI the other is VGA/DVI/HDMi etc...If I plug my Second monitor into my video cards HDMi port then run that adapter would I be able to have a triple monitor set up?

Sorry if I didn't expplain it well I'm really tired.

Depends on the card's features, but probably.
