TV as Monitor Tags: Tuner Cards TV Computers Monitors Graphics Last response: November 28, 2007 6:56 PM in Graphics & Displays Share ram1009 November 26, 2007 8:19:32 PM I'm thinking about using a 32" LCD TV as a monitor for one of my computers ( for gaming mostly). Is anybody else doing this and if so how is it working out? Are there any unforseen consequences?

And only expensive LCDs (think 1080p) will handle any resolution over 1366x768. skittle November 26, 2007 9:00:55 PM Not only that, but most games that do support widescreen, only support 16:10.. while widescreen TVs are 16:9 Related resources Tv For a monitor - Forum What's better, TV or Monitor ? - Forum Losing icons on desk monitor when HDMI cable plugged in to TV - Forum Against Tom's advice, I'm still thinking TV over monitor - Forum TV or Monitor ? - Forum Can't find your answer ?
