Hi, im giving away my old monitor to my brother so in return im looking for a HDTV which will be used as a monitor for my computer plus watching tv would be a great add. So what im looking for is one that can handle my needs which are online gaming(Fps, Real-time displays) and visibility issues/pixel performance(Like overstretch of pictures etc.). For my graphics card i will make sure it will not bottleneck the Display's performance

A General Layout of the spec im looking for:
24-28"
HDMI + DVI output, 1080p(Or 720p?, which would be best for view? so i could real texts, The monitor will be about 2-4feet away)
Price range should not be too overboard, but options are great
Do not need built-in speakers


OR should i get an HD Monitor one that could also be used as a tv also via tuner
Whichever is better

Thank you for your time

I would HIGHLY recommend this option: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Some things I would suggest: 1.) Go for either an ASUS, Hanns-G, or Samsung brand; as they are the best in my opinion. 2.) Get a monitor with Full HD LED back-lighting; as this enhances the color greatly as well as clarity and sharpness. 3.) Make sure the monitor is ADJUSTABLE! I cannot tell you how many times I've wanted to adjust my monitor just to find out it cannot move. 4.) Lastly, make sure it includes the inputs that you require, many monitors can be deceiving with prices and still not include HDMI or Display Port.

If I we're you, I would browse some online sites such as Best Buy http://www.bestbuy.com or Newegg http://www.newegg.com/ to pick out a monitor that perfectly suits your needs and what personally appeals to you, as everyone has different opinions on what they would like to see in a monitor. It would have also helped If you gave a price range, but it's no big deal.

Hope this helped!

Sincerely,
