There generally aren't a lot of good TVs in that price range. The most you can do is just pick a TV in your price range with the screen size you want from a brand you trust.

If you really intend to stick with the $350 price range, it would be a much better idea to get a Korean 1440p monitor like the Qnix. This would be a far more significant performance increase than any $350 TV.

Just go on slickdeals, there are TV deals everyday. Yesterday there was a 50" for $200. Might still even be on sale.

well my main reason for wanting a bigger size is so i can see stuff easier as it will be bigger, how true is tho?

also for 1440p vs 1080p how much of a performance jump is it?

my specs are i5 760 quad core
7870 hawk edition 2 gb vram
12gb ram

The objects will be larger on a bigger screen, but they will less clear due to a lower pixel density. Alternatively, you can make objects bigger by increasing your computer's DPI scaling. This can be done without a new monitor.

The monitor I recommended would actually make objects appear smaller because its high resolution gives it a higher pixel density than your current monitor. It does have the advantage of displaying more information on screen though. Beyond the screen size and resolution, the monitor has a PLS panel. This gives it excellent color reproduction and great off-angle viewing. It is also easy to overclock this monitor's refresh rate to 120hz, so it should provide excellent motion clarity as well.

The biggest potential issue for you would be the performance reduction. You might have to lower the settings on many of your games due to the high resolution you would be running at.

If size matters to you, and your tv being "smart" doesn't, Insignia are great in that price range. They are very bare bones cheap POS's, but bang for buck at the lowest price range they can give you way bigger screens with no 720p bullocks, decent picture quality and passable input lag. Immediately above that price range they become worthless though, just so you know what I mean.

I'm using an Insignia 32" 1080P I got on sale from bestbuy for $229,
have my pc, mac and console hooked up to it, no lag, sharp image, could not be happier.
