You'd have to read your video adapter's specs. If the TV out is full spec of the TV then it should display as HD.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

So what you are using now is a cable that has a DVI connector on one end and a VGA connector on the other. The DVI end plugs into your computer, and the VGA plugs into the TV. Is that correct?

If so, you won't be getting HD video. Your TV should have a DVI input on it or a HDMI input. If it has a DVI input, just use a regular DVI cable to connect your computer and TV. If it has a HDMI input, sue a DVI to HDMI cable. Either of this option will provide HD video.

I cant use a dvi to hdmi as i only have one hdmi on the tv and it is used for upscale dvd player or ps3

what i basically mean is if my son sends me a home video in hd (as he has a hd video camera)
will it show as hd on my tv through the dvi from graphics card to the vga of my hd tv
if not i can get him to send it on normal dvd and save filesize

Anything you can view/play on your computer will display on your TV using the DVI-VGA cable. It however may not appear as nice as if you used a DVI-HDMI cable.
