Or is it going to be set up with your computer for PC gaming? m 0 l jcoultas98 a b x TV August 6, 2012 2:55:17 PM I would agree with Rev, but add... don't buy a sub $200 television. Buy a monitor. Their quality is flat out terrible. You can pick up an HP, or Acer monitor with integrated speakers for less than your budget. m 0 l Related resources Monitor / TV for pc gaming - what specs should I look out for? - Forum How PS3 games look on a 1080p tv - Forum What to look for in a gaming monitor - Forum Does PC gaming work/look good using a TV? - Forum Looking to buy a gaming monitor.. what should I look for? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

However, for less than $200, you would definitely be better off buying a monitor. m 0 l torresfc09 August 30, 2012 7:23:46 AM Can you actually get a TV for that price? m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
