Anyone have there Computer hooked up to a 32"(or bigger) TV?

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
I am thinking about getting a 37" TV to use as a monitor for my computer, but my computer is in my room so I was wondering if anyone does (and if so, has pictures) of how you have it set up to the point where you can sit down and play games and not use it fully for an HTPC. I have an L-shaped desk and one of those folding white tables so I think they are too shallow to lay the TV on without burning my eyes. Any suggestions, comments, pics? Thanks in advance! (Also, I didn't know if this belonged in Computer room/office or HDTVs, feel free to move it if it needs to be)

I use a wireless mouse/keyboard combo to play on my 40".
It works really well with some games, horribly with others.

Also, if you play in 1080p and you're more than 4 feet away everything will be very hard to see. (Icons don't increase in size much, crosshairs are extremely thin).

I believe the TV I'm looking at is 1080i...would everything be really small still?

"1080i and 1080p are both High Definition display formats for HDTVs. 1080i and 1080p signals actually contain the same information. Both 1080i and 1080p represent a 1920x1080 pixel resolution (1,920 pixels across the screen by 1,080 pixels down the screen). The difference between 1080i and 1080p is in the way the signal is sent from a source component or displayed on an HDTV screen. "

So yes, but it really depends on the games you play.

I use a 32" LG 1080p 120hz LCD tv as my tv and monitor...I especially like the fact that I can watch a movie on one side and surf on the other using Windows 7 Snap. Gaming on this looks pretty damn amazing

I suggest mounting your large tv on the wall above your current monitor. Solves all problems. Except if you worry about cables. Then you have to figure out how to hide the cables.

I've gamed on our 52". Even from 6 foot back, eye strain plays a factor. Keep that in mind.

Did you guys get any neck strain having it mounted above? Also, did anyone have it lying on there desk? Does it cause eye strain?
