Hi all,

ok so core spec atm =

9800gx2
Q9450 OC to 3.2ghz
8gb 1066 ram

I am currently using a Samsung TV the LE26R74BDX i think.... its served me well and looks nice, i run my games at 720p 1280x720, i play all sorts of games FPS and so on but mainly LOTRO.

I like the screen size and i like HD video playback (720p also)

I also use a PS3 on this tv aswell as connecting an ariel and watching TV

So things i like, PS3 looks great as it should, so does digital tv and my games look nice 2

However, with the rig i have, i cant help but think im not getting the full potential out of it when running my games at 720p. And thats why im thinking about getting a 24" or 26" full 1080p monitor such as
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/141323
or
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/148860

The price difference is quite a lot and im not sure its worth paying that much more for only 1.5" more screen.

So to round off, i want my monitor to be able to.....
Run games and look nicer than what i have already
Run Full 1080p films And run 720p films (will 720p films etc be stretched on a 1080p screen? im not sure?)
I also dont want it to be any smaller than PS3 or 2 so i can use HDMI to connect my video card aswell

Also im a uni student and do look up documents etc and things on the creen and the font looks a bit poor and can be sometimes out of focus.

Any suggestions would be really welcome

I also dont know whats on the horizon in terms of screens etc so any advice on future techs that might make these ideas obsolete would be great.

thanks alot

ok, well 38 views and no replys, not promising.

Well here's an update, hopefully it might spark some replies.

I've been looking at this

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/141323

and then i have seen the samsung are just releasing a new line

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/143328

these, and wondered if anyone knows whats in the imminent pipeline from samsung. So i can decide wether to hold off and buy the newer screen or just go ahead and get the 1st samsung i linked.

ANY input would be appreciated.

Thanks
