Don't get TV's, you'll regret it. Your choice of big monitors include 24-27", while the normal range is 22-23". If you think you can put to use the extra space when you aren't gaming and can afford it, then go big. Otherwise the 22-23" will be just fine. I had triple 22's and had plenty of space for gaming / work.

I'm blinded by the awsomeness of that youtube vid I posted on the previous page! Monitors, while cool, are not that big for that price!

I just took the dive and love it
