illl be shure to tell you how it goes
Well its not a waste for viewing up close as you intend to use it. But for someone sitting 12 feet away the difference from 720p to 1080p isn't noticeable. I think the formula is inches times 1.5 to figure out distance for TV resolution. So for a 37" you would need to be closer than 55.5" or 4.6 feet to really notice a difference.
Most people don't sit that close so the 1080P would be a waste where you could get a higher quality 720P set for the same price. But you'll be gaming closer than 4.6 feet so it will work out good for you. That's why computer monitors have much higher resolutions than most TV's. Because your sitting a few feet vs 8-10 feet + when viewing.
Hope that makes sense. I'm sure you'll love it when you get it man! Beats Tube TV for sure
