What are you planning to use more a TV or a PC?
If you plan to use a PC more then go for the PC with a Nice TV Tuner Card and if you plan to use the TV more or other household members are not that computer savvy then go for the TV Combo.

How about both? Why not get a monitor with an integrated TV tuner and also get a TV Tuner card for your PC? Samsung has a line of monitors with integrated tuners.

Then you can watch TV without waiting for your PC to boot up but also have the flexibility to use your PC as a DVR with online television programming guide if necessary. :D

^+1 this sounds like a good plan for allowing you to build a HTPC and get regular TV.

The clarity of a Monitor cannot be beaten by that of a tele.... the more they complicate it the worse the result.
Spec may say otherwise, but the user finally know..... it's great to watch tele on your monitor and it sucks to browse the net on your tele....

Well, Ok, what is your budget?
I found a really great monitor and tv in one the Sony Bravia
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
I really don't know how much that'll be available for here....

Although you might find a 24" Benq or Samsung but it's not worth it going for that size.
Actually it all depends on your room size, but if I had the money, I'd think of going for that 32" Sony, it's not too big and it's HD so I guess pretty much worth the quality I might get it for here.
But I know Sony happens to be on the more expensive side around here but still give it a thought.
Of course there are other brads and you need to go out to a few showrooms and lets see. Post the models that you reviewed and their prices, We'll help you out.

Hells!!! I just checked out Sony India and I can't keep a straight face...... :( 
All the damn things are bleeding expensive here.....

Hells!! it'll be cheaper to pick up a projector and have a great audio system to go with it.....
Go for the new View Sonic 27" or go for the Benq 24" LED it's just about 15K-18K INR.
And I have 3 of them, so they're really cool.....
Of course I used to watch TV on one of them thru the Computer but finally gave up cos of quality problems.....
