Hey guys, I am gonna try to build this machine with following spec :

MSI P45 Neo2 ATX MotherBoard with Max speed 1600FSB, 1066 DDR2 Ram.
Core 2 Duo E8400
HighTech ( HIS ) ATI Radeon HD4850 1Gb Memory ( I might get 2 of those " Total 2GB " for CrossFire if improve my Game Play and Bluray Movie )
4GB Corsair Dominator, Twin2x2408, PC 8500-1066 DDR2 ( 4 bars i think )

That is the basic set up, I will use Bluray Sony or Asus or LG Brand ( I have not decide yet ). Well my question is When I use LCD TV with 1366 x 768 Screen Solution ( LG 26LG30R ) will it slow down my Game or problem with FPS ? Should I go for some TVs like this Samsung LA32A550 ? Please delight me with some LCD Monitors which giving the best Bluray Experience and Game also.

Thank you for your fast reply, should I try other bigger LCD which support up to 1920x1200 ? What is different between 1366x768 LCD TV with 1920x1200 LCD Monitor if I am playing Game ?

Nothing except for the resolution, and FPS since it'll be smoother on your 1366x768.

Erm, Samsung has 1920x1200 res, which may be what you want. If you want to watch movies and play games I'd go with the Samsung.

Im running my rig on a Sharp 32inch 1080p LCD TV. If you want to be able to watch blu-ray at the correct screen resolution you will need at least a 1080p screen. I for one think that one HD4850 is not enough for 1920x1080. I would go for the a 1920x1200 screen.

Yeah, I might get 2 x HD4850 ( 2GB total ). What do you think about Acer G24 has DVI and HDMI port ( some review say it can support Blu-ray High-Definition content but I dont know 1080p or not ). Really I dont wanna have 1 monitor for my PC games and 1 LCD TV for my PS3 and Bluray Movie.

i don't think WoW will be enjoyable at all at the resolution of your TV. i would definitely go with the monitor, and i also think 1 4850 won't be enough at that resolution. get one 4870 and then you can crossfire if you see it fit.

WoW is very undemanding, you'll be able to play it on 1080p resolution w/ the HD 4850 just fine. You'll struggle with crysis on that resolution however, but it gets better with crossfire. I always found 1366x768 way too small to work with anyhow.

You'll be able to play high def stuff perfectly on the acer, little small for a tv but good for gaming.

One HD 4850 will be more than good enough for blu ray playback on a 1920x1200 resolution monitor, but won't work very well gaming-wise - especially with higher settings. If you plan on going the 1920x1200 monitor route, go for two HD 4850's.

Grab a 1080p especially if you have 2 4850's at 1 GB each.

Prices are dropping and fast. Ive seen a westinghouse 37" 1080p monitor sell for around $550.

But yea youll be able to run crysis with just one 4850 at 1366*768.

Its not going to look near as good as a actual monitor.

Even a 46" 1080p LCD doesn't look as good as a good as a 20-24" 1680x1050 to 1920x1200 monitor.

TVs tend to be bigger and have lower resolution than monitors.

TVs are designed for sitting 7+ feet away, monitors are deisgned for sitting less than 5 feet away.

Very true.
Crysis on 1024x768 with all settings at medium on my sig rig runs 40-ish fps.
