Hey, basically, at the minute i have a 17" CRT. im getting new furnature in my room and i really need a flat screen monitor for easy transport + to fit in with the new furnature. but basically i want it to be used a TV and a monitor.

But i don't know what will be more expensive, buying a flat screen TV and getting PC convertor, or getting a monitor and a TV adapter. i also want to use this combo TV/monitor for gaming (PC) and with my xbox 360.

i have a feeling the 360 part might mean having to buy a TV and getting PC adaptions. only want it 17/19" really. However, i have the feeling that my computer plugged into a TV might have poor resolution and look alot worse than if i had a real monitor plugged in. also i think it might have a small amount of lagg, giving me disadvantages in online gaming.

any help is appreciated, thanks! :whistling:

Try looking for a recommended monitor on CNet and also post the question on http://discuss.extre...ms/default.aspx you might get more responses. Or just Google your monitor requirements, it will bring up the type of monitors you are looking for and possible sites with reviews and ratings. There are flat screen TVs out there with the capability of directly hooking up your computer to them. http://reviews.cnet....-5128428-1.html Here is an example, a bit pricey though and th Tv's with pc input may be all widescreen. http://www.circuitci...roductDetail.do
