using gtx 275 .. how to connect video monitor and tv to card?

Anyway, even if I didn't do a good job of answering

Is there a gamer's version of a touch screen table ?

Basically a PC in a flat table top ? Anybody
seen something like this? I have a special
application that could use it, but I don't want
to pay a fortune for the Microsoft table.
