I have a 23inch samsung 1080p(1920x1080) LED monitor. i also have a 26 inch LG 720p (some random resolution? like 1388 by 768? im not sure ill check later.) LCV tv. which one would be better suited for gaming? i am running a intel core i7 2600k and a msi gtx 560ti twin frozr 2. how i heard you get better framerates at lower resolutions. so would i get better fps when using the 720p lg tv? cause if so im going to use the tv as my main monitor and my 23 inch samsung as my ps3 monitor.

You will get better FPS by having a lower resolution. But, you'd also want a monitor that has a response of usually under 2ms. Usually monitors have faster response times than t.v.

I don't know the response times of either monitor you will be playing.

Yes, you can increase the fps the lower the resolution you have. But games look better at higher resolution. The gtx 560 Ti is fine & will deliver smooth framerates for most games even at 1920x1080. If it doesn't you can reduce the game setting to high or medium which I think will still be more enjoyable than playing at 1366x768.

Besides, you can always watch TV while playing on the Samsung monitor... which you can't if you use the LG as your gaming screen. ;) 

As for the PS3, its video output is less detailed than the PC's so might as well use the TV for it. The TV should have enough HDMI input to swap between the PC, PS3 & TV broadcast.
