Exclamation Samsung TV vs Samsung PC Monitor!

First I was thinking getting the Samsung 226BW for my self.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...1096&Tpk=226bw

The I remembered that my 14 years old brothers B-day in 2 weeks and he really wanted a new TV (and his comp monitor was kind of bad) So I decided to give him a nice present by getting a nice LCD TV, and he can use that 4 all his needs TV, PC, PS2, Sound system…etc This thing is like 23” and it has so many inputs/outputs. Samsung LN-T2342H 23”
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...&Tpk=LN-T2342H

So after reviewing this TV and having a look at some pictures I decided why not get the same thing 4my self? What do u guys think?
Now I primary be using it for PC games, and aside from it have a bit less resolution then the 226bw and having just a bit slower response time of 8ms instead of 2ms, I think it would work great 4 me!

I can really use your help guys, because this is a big purchase 4 me, and I really don’t want to go bad! Do u think i will have Ghosting on this TV? Will the In game picture be nice and clear?

8ms won't produce ghosting. don't worry. this guy i know has a Sharp 52" LCD with 8ms and it ghosts a bit but thats cuz its a really big tv

Thanks for the info Borat.

this is what I was told by one of my buddys.

You can get converters for the inputs (I think).

Do you want a TV or a monitor?

The two things are actually quite different, you look for different things with a TV than a monitor.


So when the specs say "Recommended Resolution "1366 x 768" Does it mean this is the higest resolution? I been runing my current CRT at 1280-1024 for like 5 years and i love it, can i have the same res on this TV? is ther a way to find out what res will this TV offer me aside from 1366 x 768?

thanks.
