Need advice - HDTV for PC and PS3

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I need some advice on a setup I was planning. Let me know if it's do-able and what kind of performance I might expect, or if I need to go back to the drawing board.

I have a Doublesight DS-263N, which I plan to keep when I build me a new system. I've been redesigning my office (probably about 11 feet square). My plan is to install a wall or ceiling mount 5.1 speaker system and purchase an A/V receiver to plug up my PC and PS3.

I'm also looking at wall mounting an HDTV right over my desk so I'd only be ~3 feet away from it sitting at my keyboard. I was looking at a 40-42", but may have to rethink that due to the room size and several posts on OCN talking about viewing distance. Right now my PS3 is plugged up to a Sony 46" 1080p, and if I move my console, I really hate to downsize too much. On the other hand, I also want to use the HDTV I buy for PC gaming as well, so the bigger the better (within reason). I might be willing to go for a 1080p HDTV in the 32-37" range if all this is possible and I'd get good results.

So what do you guys think? Any ideas, comments, or suggestions welcome.

@ 37 inches you need at least 4 feet for the display to appear 1080p to your eye. Otherwise it will be blocky and unwanted.
