I want to use my 60inch tv as a gaming monitor using my pc to play games and use a xbox 360 controller to play it from on the couch.

I read up saying the pc input allows maximum resolution of 1600x1200 this is a vga cord.

My 680gtx has a hdmi port on it. If i were to plug a HDMI cord from the video card to the tv will it allow the resolution of 1920x1080 or will i still be stuck at 1600x1200?

Thank you,
Brendon

the "PC" input.......... along with the HDMI slot on the TV is there also a vga connector?

what is the native resolution of the TV?

you should be able to achieve that through the HDMI connection.

forget about the vga or using the TV that way. stick with the HDMI cable. you can enable it in the TV's control panel after it's hooked up and running. and it should run at 1080p.

Gaming should look the same as if i played a ps3 game like this right? using a xbox 360 controller from like 8 ft away.

It will look a hell of allot better than a PS3. Textures and colors and contrast just pop real nice and look much better on a quality TV set than they do on most monitors I have seen and used.

TV + HDMI 1.4a @ 1920x1080 is what your after, my sons PC/PS3/Xbox looks great on it compared to his 1old 9" Acer monitor.
