Default GPU Question.

Hi I am "zedd",

I am currently kicking around the idea of building myself a gaming pc for around $1000. I have a really good idea of all the hardware i want...... except for the gpu. The reason being i have no monitor and was thinking of using my 37" sony vizio lcd tv instead. is this a good idea or bad idea? I want to spend around $200 on gpu, but wasnt sure if any card would be able to support high graphics on a screen that large (full screen?). Games (empire total war-shougun 2, skyrim, bf3, supreme commander)

I've been looking for a while on different companies support links, probably had the anwser right in front of me. I need to talk to a person LOL

the high end cards will most definitely be able to handle that size of tv, I use to play on my roommates 42 vizio with a radeon hd 6790. So im sure with a 200 dollar card you find, it will be a blast.

Edit: As long as it is HDMI then you are good

From what I know your TV should work fine, I've been able to hook mine up to my TV monitor without any trouble.

For around $200 you will get a very nice AMD / ATI or nVidia Graphics Card (Both camps make great cards) do check your TV connections as to connecting a Graphics card though
Core i7 3770K, Gigabyte GA-Z77P-D3, Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO, Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB DDR3, ASUS GeForce GTX 650 Ti, Corsair Series CX750w, Intel 320 Series SSD, WD Caviar Black 1TB, Pioneer BDR-207DBK 12x Blu Ray/DVD, Black Night Case, Saitek & Razer, Windows 7 Pro SP1 x64, ZA Antivirus + Firewall
