Which will look better?

Okay right now I have a

16:9 LCD 22 inch HP monitor with 1680 x 1050 Resolution and 1000:1 Contrast Ratio

but for Christmas I am getting a Vizio tv which I am planning on using for my computer

32 inch 16:9 LCD panel With 1366 x 768 HD resolution 100,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio

So which one will look better? I know my screen now has higher resolution, but the tv kills my screen in dynamic contrast.

P.S. I have a gts 450 graphics card

Computer monitors will always look better than TV's,imo.

The LCD monitor will look the best because it has more pixels than the LCD TV which means it will look more sharp and crisp.

The contrast ratio doesn't exactly pertain to the "quality" of the image but the brightness/darkness in the images.

Have a look at this for some more in depth info about ratio's.

That basically means one guy put a bigger number on his box than the other guy put on his.....claimed specs and real specs are two different things.

I would switch from the TV to a 1920 x 1200/1080 monitor. Yes, the 450 will be somewhat challenged to push it in many games but a new card fixes that. You can always play at lower resolutions.

I just noticed something actually on the specs for the TV it says: Supported Computer Resolutions:1024 x 768 (XGA), 640 x 480 (VGA), 800 x 600 (SVGA), 1920 x 1080. What does it mean by SVGA and how bad would it be on the GTS 450? I only have a normal VGA by the way

I have a Vizio 32" 720p(probably the same as yours) and it works fine at it's native resolution of 1366 x 768 wether i'm using the HDMI or RGB connection from my PC.

So even though it doesn't list 1366x768 as a supported resolution for the PC it will work at that resolution? How does it look?

It looks like ***.The pixels are so big it makes everything look really bad compared to my monitor.
