What is better? Using a 22-inch Full HD PC-Monitor or Using a Full HD 22-inch TV as a monitor?

I intend to buy a display device for my computer. Here are its specs.

Processor : 2nd Gen Intel Core i7-2600K (8MB Cache, 3.4GHz-3.8GHz)
RAM : 16GB DDR3
Graphics : Zotac Nvidia GeForce GTX 770
PSU : Corsair GS700 @ 700 Watts

As I said, I was looking to buy a new monitor. I personally liked this HP Monitor...

But then I thought buying a TV would be better... And I know buying a large TV and using it as a monitor would be foolish... So I came across this 22-inch Samsung TV which was also good...

And I heard somebody saying that using a TV as a monitor would result in a higher load on the graphics card, thereby reducing its performance & life.. Is that true?

Note : I do intend to play games.. So yeah, Even if its a TV that I purchase, It should be fast enough... I guess the Samsung TV says, its 100Hz, which is good I guess...

So what do you think is gonna be better? The HP Monitor or the Samsung TV? Or is there any other TV/Monitor that is better than the these two?

If you wanna suggest a Monitor/TV,

My requirements are :

The panel type should be IPS, screen size should be around 22-24 inch... Full HD (Must), Reasonably fast Response Time & a good refresh rate...

    I know looks matter a lot.. But I guess the Samsung TV has a better refresh rate, which means, Its gonna be faster than the HP Monitor...

    And I've another question... The HP Monitor says its LED, but we all know that its just LED-Backlit... But the Samsung TV says its LED, I dont know for sure if its Full LED or just LED-Backlit just like the HP Monitor... Can anybody tell me whether the Samsung TV is Full LED or LED-Backlit?

    And which one do u think is better? The monitor or the TV?
