This question stems from the last thread I made (should have put this question with the last one). I have both a Coby & Emerson 32" (I know, cheap but that ok lol), both resolution 1366 X 768. I will have my build complete as soon as I get a GPU, either Radeon 6870 or Radeon 6950. Would it be a bad idea to use this for gaming? Mainly games like BF3, GTA4, Borderlands, Arkham Asylum? Also my monitors max resolution is 1600 X 900 and would possible have both the TV and monitor on at the same time (duplicate screens, dont know if this makes any difference or how it would work out with 2 different maximum resolutions.) Thanks in advance

You can use both - I'm using a 40" Samsung TV as my primary display and a 1280x1024 19" monitor as secondary. However the Samsung is 1080p and gives quite a good quality picture - I'm not sure how good a 1366 x 768 resolution would look. No harm in trying though.

If you're cloning the desktop I believe both displays will output at whichever resolution is lowest.
