Monitor VS TV

Monitor VS TV
I am building a PC along the same lines as the tier 6 Gaming PC guide with a higher end case and increased RAM. I just had a few questions. For my set-up I wanted to connect my computer directly to a tv instead of a monitor so I can play games and watch movies from my living room. Are there cons to using a tv instead of a monitor? LED vs Plasma as far as Gaming Frame rates?

Thanks in advance,

RE: Monitor VS TV
Assuming the plasma tv is already rated for 60fps then you should be fine as far as frame rate goes, unless you wanted higher FPS. The specific model of the television would help to see how the response times are and everything.

However, If you already own the TV why not just hook the computer to it and test it for yourself? If you like it then you're good to go =).

RE: Monitor VS TV
Another red flag, the Tier 6 article is over a year old. Let us know your budget for the PC, whether you want to overclock or not, and whether you need to buy Windows, and we can recommend an update.

RE: Monitor VS TV
i like my plasma screen and use it for everything from gaming to movies. for myself i prefer it over lcd or led screens for the money, it has a much better image until OLEDS's come down in price i will be keeping mine.

the bad thing about plasma's(unless it is a newer model Samsung) is that if you play games with hud's or static images on the screen, you will get burn in if you dont set your tv settings correctly. BUT, most of the time if you do get some burn in then the white noise or whitewash function will remove it or with regular movie watching it will most likely disappear over time.

good luck
