The VGA connection on your computer usually connects into the monitor, but you can use the connection output to attach your computer to a projector or even an HD television. The VGA output is better to use because you can easily convert it to HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) and not lose any of the picture quality you do with other computer to TV connections (such as RCA or S-video).
