hey. right now i have a 17in crt monitor and a radeon 9200 in my room. i dont have a tv so i was looking into replacing my monitor with an lcd tv, that i would use as a monitor and a tv. Well someone told me it would be cheaper to get a tv tuner card and a lcd monitor. Well I have not decided yet, but devised another plan. I would keep my 17in CRT and buy an lcd. the crt would be plugged into the analog, and the lcd into the dvi port on my video card. Then i would buy a tuner card. Would i be able to watch tv on one and surf the web on the other without any interferance or lockups? Are usb tuners better than pci?

here are the products i was looking at:

LCD monitor:

LCD TV:

TV Tuner(unless USB is better):

Tuner Card


-Thanks

I have a Leadtek Winfast PCI card. It will display as either a re-sizable window or full screen on either monitor. It even comes with a remote control. <_< That would be a good solution. It's been proven that using two monitors is one of the best things you can do for productivity. Far more effective than a larger monitor or faster computer.
