xfx 6970 & 34" LCD TV for gaming?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have an xfx 6970 2gb coming in the mail soon and I was wondering if anyone knows what the quality would be like if I used my 42" Samsung LCD 1080p tv as the monitor. Was wondering how good the quality would be if I were to set that up and use a wireless keyboard and mouse on my coffee table to play games like Starcraft 2 etc.

I m using Sony 55 " tv and wireless key board and mouse it's looks great but make sure your tv support gaming mode other wise if you want to watch movie it lags using hdmi and buy a xbox wireless controller for best result and the key board and mouse make sure its gaming version if you want to game other wise you cane get multimedia ones but there will be some delay time

you'll have to sit at the proper distance and with the proper settings - even perhaps a calibration, but it should look fantastic.

Yuck. 1080p stretched out that big? I would rather get a bigger resolution monitor. The it will make everything so much clearer.

...and super choppy while gaming*, unless he's running old games on XP

1080p looks phenomenal on my 55" for everything* and at about 4-5' away

nothing quite like getting massive frames on a huge display that handles motion flawlessly
