    Default Monitor or HDTV for PC gaming

    Planning to upgrade my rig (GPU- MSI GTX 780TI & 16GB RAM). The new 27" ASUS monitors available recently are overpriced to my concern. So, I am thinking of buying a 32" SONY 1080p hdtv and hooking up my PC (HDMI connection). But some of my friends advised against it. They believe that the picture quality will not be as sharp as a monitor & there will be issues such as response time, refresh rate, post processing, input lags, audio connection & resolution.

    I have been scouring the internet for a majority poll. Some say that PC gaming on HDTV looks great with a few settings tweak & some say that it looks horrible. The mixed reviews have left me confused.

    Please suggest whether I should save money for a larger monitor or should I go for a HDTV. Also, please state what inevitable problems will I face if I choose HDTV for PC Gaming ?

    Thank you all.

    For gaming on hdtv from distance is just a joy.
    But for normal use from a short distance is horrible.
    Simple

    i replaced my 24" monitor with a 47" Sony Bravia KDL 47W804A (one of the lowest latency unit as confirmed by Cnet gaming HDTVs) and have no plan to go back.

    Just ask ur friends to play on a low latency HDTV. which is the one and only critical factor.

    low latency kicks in with gaming preset within the HDTV. If u have the budget and made up ur mind give me a buzz. i can help u out with more info.
