Default Which to get?

Well, I want a 32inchers...yes 32inches...but its an HD TV not a monitor. These are the specs. http://boardsus.playstation.com/play...age.id=2730836

OR

Should I get a 23 inch monitor for the same price, about, which has a much better resoultion.

I'm just worried about the resolution, and not being able to read text. You guys tell me.

depends on what you use your computer for... if it's for games i'd stick with the 23 inch if it's for anything else i'd go with the 32 inch

Dude, to be looking at 32 inches all the time would hurt your eyes, alot. Its too big!

Games would look nice, but it would get annoying. What about just a nice 23", a DELL one maybe. I got my 19" recently, and its doing me great, big enough.

I'd stick with the the 23in monitor which has better resolution. I think a 23in monitor is way to big though. I got a 19'', and its really big. Stick with LCDs for reducing eye fatigue, and being more energy friendly.

This is a pretty good one. Got a 700:1 contrast ratio, and 8ms reaction time for only about 200 bucks.
