Are you sure you want 1366 x 768 resolution? If so, go for it. I personal have a preference for higher resolution over size. I'm pimpin' a 24" 1900x1080 resolution LCD. HDMI to my cable box, DVI to my PC, VGA to whatever else I'm using.

haha, that's ghetto. I used to swear by CRT screens because of the refresh rate. But then I got my first LCD. You will never go back.

I got a dual screen setup. 17" and 24"

I bought a computer monitor that had HDMI and DVI input. DVI is my PC and HDMI goes to my cable box.

A TV monitor will come with a tuner which you probably won't use but that depends on your service and better speakers.

Ok, go for the TV. If you don't like using it as a computer screen, buy an LCD monitor anyway and have two screens!
