hi,

im building a system currently and i am thinking about using my tv as a monitor which is 42 inch .

its full hd so the screen resolution is 1920/1080 and i am just wondering if this is a good idea for gaming, the tv has game mode which has a refresh rate of 600hz and the response time is 0.0002 or something.

can you help me please :D 

my PC specs are:

i7 2600k 3.4gz
amd HD 6950 2gb
8 gb g-skill ripjaws 2133 mhz
kingwin lazer 1000w psu
Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z Intel Z68 (Socket 1155) Motherboard
1tb samsung spin point
sharkoon t9 valuecase white :)  :sol:

I don't see why not...you definitely have the setup for it, I guess what it boils down to is what kind of gaming would you be doing? It's a horrible idea for competitive FPS unless its console...Other than that, thumbs up.

ok great , one last thing, is the higher the resolution the better graphics the games will be?

mrhearnden the higher the resolution the more pixels that will show up so yes in a way but i think a slightly lower resolution with higher ingame settings has better graphics but your graphics card should be able to play COD at max settings at highest resolution same with dirt 3. not sure about BF3 since it will be graphic intensive but i think you will be able to play at around medium settings at that resolution which should look amazing

thanks for the advice erick1134i have heard that to run battlefield 3 on full settings it will take around 1gig of dedicated RAM, this is coming from systems requirements lab, but as i say , graphics and displays is not my expertise so the one game i was hoping to run at max setting was bf3 :/

600 Hz... would this be plasma? If so, Plasmas are susceptible to burn in as LCD's are not

well i said that because at pc gamer the recommended system requirements (which usually means the game will run fine with decent settings) has a 6850 which costs around $170 last time i checked

so wouldnt be surprised if you could run at max settings but also wouldnt be surprised if you had to have some settings on medium while others on high

also on that same site in your link it says same system requirements if you click leaked battlefield system requirements in the news for battlefield 3 section

and @FlintIronStagg thats what screensavers are for

anyways heres link for pc gamer requirements page http://www.pcgamer.com/2011/07/08/battlefield-3-system-...

How can your screen saver prevent burn in from a HUD element in a game?
