TV or Monitor 4 HTPC/PC Build?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Looking at building a HTPC/PC for the livingroom, also would double as PC for wife, email, facebook, and Steam (Puzzle, Arcade, Lego's)!

Looked at this TV,
http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-UN32F5000-32-Inch-1080p-60Hz/dp/B00BCGRXD8/ref=sr_1_8?m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&s=tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1389485520&sr=1-8&keywords=samsung+tv


Question, would the dotpitch on a 30"_ish 1080P TV look good on non movies/shows & Steam? Or do I get a 25-27"_ish monitor? Wanting 6-5ms on the response time...

Also, when sitting, 24-30"(inches) from said screen, Steam and Movies/shows, would sit 3feet or farther away.

I think most TVs and monitors speakers are horrible unless they have them facing towards you. I would personally get a TV to use for this and find one with from facing speakers or using external ones or something like a sound bar. Also as long as the refresh rate is 60hz on the TV i would use it and near the response time you want. Also consider this on picking your size.
