HDMI or DVI or S-VId to TV

Specs: Windows 7, 5200/2GB

I would just like general advice on the potential of hooking up my PC to a TV. I would like the best possible resolution and decent audio quality. I am learning the basics of this process.

I currently have two dual displays running from my external GPU. I am wondering if I can hook up a DVI port/solution to my DVI out on my internal GPU. Would it see the TV as a third display? Do I need to make changes in windows (Windows 7 in this case- besides 'adding the monitor')? What is the best option below? I would like this option to last into the future.
My current situation

• TV
o Graphics
Inputs: DVI and HDMI
o Audio

• Computer
o Graphics:
780a SLI integrated GPU (with DVI or VGA out) and an external Geforce 7600 GT (with s-video out)
o Audio:
Realtek 8-channel 2/4/5.1/7 channel and S/PDIF Out

• Options:
o Option One
I could go this route and feed it through the S-video (I have a converter) through if I read correctly your resolution is 640 x 400 or something. I do not want this low of resolution unless this is the only option.
The audio option built in:

o Option Two
HDMI solution
Same audio solution

o Option Three
Same audio solution

o Option Four
I realize my external GPU is dated and the internal GPU may even better. Would it better if I just brought a higher end GPU with HDMI out?

Thanks for any and all help on this matter.

I think this will be my solution.

PREMIUM 10FT 3.5mm Stereo Male to 3.5mm Stereo Male 22AWG Cable - Gold Plated 25ft

HDMI DVI Tin-Plated Copper CL2 Rated (For In-Wall Installation) Cable (26AWG) - 25ft

3.5mm Stereo Plug/2 RCA Plug cable - 6ft
This is my other solution if the other audio cable does not work.
