Want: new tv to be used as PC monitor

by A_O / December 14, 2004 11:01 PM PST

i want to get a new tv to be my PC monitor, but it will NOT be my primary monitor.

USES: video game playing (PC/XBOX), graphical design work, and watching DVDs.

DESIRED SIZE: nothing bigger than 40"

QUALITY: middle of the road is fine. i don't want plasma, so i guess that really leaves only LCD because i can only find DLP tvs bigger than 40". i'm afraid of the "burn" issue though. i don't need tons of extra junk, but i would like my DVDs to look super good.

So that's the deal. what suggestions do you have?
