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?

Not all games support widescreen resolutions, So you might have to deal with those black bars on either side of the screen or a stretched picture on those games. And only expensive LCDs (think 1080p) will handle any resolution over 1366x768.

Not only that, but most games that do support widescreen, only support 16:10.. while widescreen TVs are 16:9

i know counterstrike supports 16:9
i dont play many games but most of the newer games should have 16:9 ratio aspects available
