Hi there, I currently have a 17'' HP LCD monitor and i would like to upgrade, to a 32'' LCD TV. I've heard that they work on PCs but there are some issues like 'TV burning' or something like that, i also heard it lags but these issues are with older ones from what i've read, is there a new one that works good with PC gaming? Thanks in advance
Btw I have an ATI 5770 so i need one that'll work with this.
I don't see the point of going for a large TV, really, unless you have to sit far away from it for some reason. On 1920x1080, I think more than 24" is overkill: you can just sit close to the screen, and it'll fill your vision as well as a big screen farther away (a close, large screen would look bad, as the pixels would be clearly visible). A higher resolution would be a different story, but that'd be fabulously expensive.
@CrysisComa I always take videos and screenshots with fraps, the reason i'm getting Tv is because the screenshots look really grainy (1280x1024) so i dont think a Tv would do me any good, thanks for the heads up
@kajabla I sit pretty close to my monitor, like 13'' away...
Since a Tv dosen't seem that essential for me i'll just buy a new monitor. Is there one thats like the 1298x1024 resoloution just bigger? I don't want a widescreen monitor because if i get one and take screenshots with fraps it will be a wider, which might be a problem since i took lots of screenshots in lots of different games already, a widescreen monitor will make them look different.
I don't know of a higher resolution that shares the 1.25:1 aspect ratio of 1280x1024, but I can assure you that you'll appreciate the higher resolution more than you'll regret the mismatched screenshots.
EDIT: I sit approximately 10 inches away from my monitor, will the larger screen be necessary? Because i was just reading an article and it said that the bigger the screen the more poor the quality will be, and if you're close to a large monitor, like 27'' it will look blocky...
That monitor's a standard HD monitor but very large. Why not just get a standard 24"
monitor for $200? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Yes, it will be harder for your GPU to handle games at the higher resolution (you certainly won't be maxing anything out), but remember that the point of a gaming build is to look good, not to have the maximum possible settings enabled.
