I havent gotten the card yet, but im thinking of buying a VIVO 7800GTX card, how would i connect it to this HD TV http://product.samsung.com/cgi-bin/nabc/product/b2c_product_detail.jsp?eUser=&prod_id=TXR3079WHX%2fXAA <

Would i connect it via Component? or Would i connect it via DVI to HDMI cable, my tv does 480p, 720p, 1080i (it doesnt say 720p but it does).. Thanks in advance.

you would connect it via component (y, pb, pr) using the Vivo connetor on the video card.

I would use a DVI to HDMI adapter. You'll get a hell of a lot better picture. That is a CRT though...generally it isn't a good idea to use a CRT TV for PC games.

I only tried it once, and it was on my brothers tv Panasonic 37" HD Plasma (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=7117915&type=product&productCategoryId=pcmcat31800050028&id=1110265592409), i didn't have any DVI to HDMI connector available so I used the component and the picture was great (to me anyways). You would probably get a higher quality picture using the HDMI connector, but like I said I didn't have access to one so I can't vouch for it.
