    Depends on what 'plasma' you have. What connectors?

    It depends quite a bit on your specific plasma TV, and what video
    resolution it will support. Most of the large screen TVs are
    actually quite low resolution, much less than a monitor. 1024 x 768
    is considered high resolution for a plasma TV, and there are many
    models which will not support this.

    The Panasonic TH-50PX50U 50 inch plasma does support 1366 x 768
    resolution which is good for HDTV but is not a standard PC
    configuration. You would have to use 1024 x 768 resolution, which it
    also supports. It does not have a PC input connector so you would
    need a video card in your computer that produces S-Video or Component
    Video (3 cables) output.

    The Panasonic TH-50PX500U, also a 50 inch plasma, has the same
    resolution and also has a PC input connector so it can be hooked
    directly to the computer's monitor port.

    Good luck
