TV's are perfectly acceptable if you aren't a highly competitive player. I game mostly single player games and I don't notice any input lag with my TV so its perfect. I have a powered usb port right by my couch and a nice wooden surface that I use my mouse from with my keyboard in lap.

Best part about gaming on a 46 inch tv? A real home theater surround sound system. To me it sets it apart so much that when I have to use headphones I'm saddened. And I'm not talking about those home theater in a boxes, I'm talking a real receiver with passive floorstanding and bookshelf speakers with a powered sub right behind the couch.


So true. I don't play online competitive hardly at all. 95% of my gaming is either single player or multiplayer co-op. I do not notice any input lag at all on my LED and after gaming on a 55" screen on my nice, comfortable couch, sitting at a computer desk, looking at a 27" monitor just seems like too much of an downgrade... I have the choice to do either, but, the only time I game on my 27" monitor is when the game doesn't support a gamepad.

Big screen, max-setting PC gaming ftw!

23" and that is as big as I would go for the distance I sit from my desk.

Actually 23" is kind of pushing it for RTS games for me.

17 inch laptop, but 19 inch TV monitor can be used. 19 inch monitor for the desktop.

20" TV. 1440x900 720p.

Also have a 19" CRT monitor.

It's true. I play with my keyboard and mouse on a lap board sitting on my couch in front of my TV. My computer is a HTPC, as well.

It's humble, but I'm satisfied with it.

20 CRT :)


Why are you using a monitor from the olden days? That thing must weigh like 60lbs


I don't really know anymore....

I'm really damn lazy I guess.

But I'm not lying, take a look.

I voted the first one because my laptop screen is 17", but I mainly use an external monitor that's 21.5", but that wasn't a choice in the poll.
