The TV that I am talking about is this...

http://www.samsung.com/us/video/tvs/UN22F5000AFXZA

And my computer specs are :

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

So does using this TV increase the load on the graphics card and reduce its performance & life?
And is that TV compatible with my system's configuration?

i think anything samsung destroys something, but thats just my experience with the brand.
tv's are not made for gaming and will have more inputlag.
a tv is just a display, only the resolution changes the strain on the pc, you could have more strain if you use the motion smoothing function enabled and play with higher setting in games.

Well the higher the resolution of the monitor/tv you are using, the higher the load on the graphics card. I wouldn't expect a reduction of the lifespan of the card. The only thing you would notice is possibly lower fps in games. And yes, the monitor should be compatible using hdmi.

So does that mean, the load on the graphics card / performance of the graphics card remains the same if I use this Full HD TV in comparison to a Full HD Monitor?

I mean, do I get the same FPS for both a Full HD Monitor & this Full HD TV?

If the TV and monitor are the same resolution, then yes the performance should be the same.
