Yes, but I suggest buying the most expensive LCD monitor you can find to improve the video quality of the games.

#2, you ought to be banned for trying to mislead the OP in this heinous manner. People like you make me sick.

#1 is right, though I would also recommend purchasing a new TV, because your 4 year old 61" TV will not work next year once everything goes digital unless it has an HDMI port.

You're welcome.

You might be able to get a firmware upgrade for that 61 inch TV. I have upgraded several of my TV to HDMI with a simple firmware upgrade.

Sure, just Google "hdmi firmware upgrade". When I did that, I got approximately 573,000 hits, and I'm sure one of them will be what you're looking for. You're welcome!

You'll have to get an hdmi-dvi cable or converter plus the monitor must support HDCP which I think most do these days...

You might also have to peel off the back label/cover to unhide the HDMI connector after the firmware upgrade.
