i want ur reviews about this TV to be used as a monitor for a budget gaming pc.
http://www.samsung.com/pk/consumer/tv-audio-video/television/lcd-tv/LA32C450E1SOT/index.idx?pagetype=prd_detail&tab=specification

i don't know much about it but just that it has a resolution of 1366*768.
v already use this as a TV and now with my new sandy bridge i3 2100 i'll use it as a monitor too.
my questions r:
1. the resultion they mentiond is 1366*768, does that mean i won't be able to play at higher resolutions?

2. since i've bought th pc i'll use it on integrated graphics for now. but i'll buy a GPU soon. i was thinking about buying a gtx460. would this b a god buy for this TV and bring ut the maxim,um performance? what else do u suggest? budget ofcourse is an important consderation.

3. would this TV bottle neck the quality of graphics created by the cpu and gpu?

any other reviews or comment that u would like to share about this monitor aka TV will all be welcomed.

The TV may technically support 1920x1080 (possibly only interlaced) as an input signal, but it will be downscaling it to 1366x768. I can state from personal experience that a 1366x768 TV does not make a good computer monitor in terms of text for email, internet browsing, etc. To use as a computer monitor, I think you'd at least want a TV that has a native resolution of 1920x1080, though some say that if you have a 1920x1080 TV and a 1920x1080 monitor at the same size, the monitor will look better for text - however, since I haven't used a 1920x1080 TV myself, I can't confirm this or say how big the difference is.
