You can always hook up a computer to a larger lcd TV through HDMI if you want to try it out yourself.
My TV is 1920x1080 and I've had it since before I built my Desktop. Before that I used a laptop which I connected to my TV pretty often. I came upon the idea of using it as a monitor when I build a desktop since I watch most of my TV shows from my computer anyway, and It would save me quite a bit of money on monitors since I already had it.

I have a HTPC hooked up to a 40" samsung (probably the same one you have there). Haven't tried any games on it though, or anything within a few feet of it. So you can read email and stuff fine while sitting at the keyboard that close?

You would be better off with a smaller TV/Monitor being that close to your setup. Surely 1080p stretched across 40" will be alot less sharp compared to a 23"-30". Think of the PPI !

40" at that distance would kill my eyes.

Great rig though dude! Love the HAF's.

If you mean the brightness, you can turn it down, its on a 1-10 scale and I have it 5 when using it as a computer monitor. I adjust it accordingly for whatever I'm using it for. It you mean the size of it well there isn't much I can do about that.

Also about the PPI point you mention, In a lot of games I believe size adds more than ppi as long as things don't looking grainy or pixelated, which I don't believe to be the case here. However I must agree with the fact that 40" is in fact overkill.

Like anything else, it's a personal thing. Chances of needing it are on par with getting hit by a meteor, but I think it's better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it. I also hike a lot and I'm generally more worried about wild animals than criminals.

But I'm not some psycho redneck that's going to call you a liberal pansie or start preaching to you for not carrying. I hate those people and they make all gun owners look bad. Everything boils down to personal choice, I won't judge you for yours if you don't judge me for mine.

actually its smart to carry, in areas where guns are illegal or overly regulated, a black market forms. So criminals still carry guns, but now law abiding citizens dont. If everybody carried, out on the street, the 2-3 thugs always standing on the corner will only be 2-3 guys with a weapon versus an entire neighborhood of people who carry

Nice subwoofer but it's probably better suited on the floor!

I would but my roommates bed is right next to my desk and space in this room is pretty limited. Had it under my desk for a while as well but after 2-3 accidental kicks decided that wasn't the best spot either. College living is rough sometimes...

Why not just get a quality set of Monitors? They'd sound just as good if not better than those?

Hell, I replaced my Z-2300's with some M-Audio AV40's and I couldn't be happier smile.gif

Your setup looks a little familiar thumbsupsmiley.png

I understand where you're coming from completely. Brightness is adjustable, picture is still crystal from just a few feet away. Gaming is magical.
