I am looking to buy a new tv, so I looking for feedback from some of you guys on what you have. I am ok with a 720 vs 1080p, and I am trying to keep the size between 27-40. Also please let me know what graphics card and tuner you have. I do plan to get a new graphics card that has hdmi output, and an HD tuner. Any and all feedback welcome. Thanks in advance.

I'd do 1080p, and you want that small of a television or are you talking about a monitor? Although most are interchangeable nowadays. If you're just sitting at a desk alone, than anything from 19"-25" is plenty: AOC F22 22 Class Widescreen LCD Monitor - 1080p, 1920x1080, 30000:1 Dynamic, 16:9, 5ms, DVI, VGA at TigerDirect.com

If you want a TV (connected to your computer nonetheless) than try something much bigger, say doubling the previously mentioned monitor: Sony KDL-40EX600 40 LCD TV With Edge LED - 1080p, 1920x1080, 16:9, PC Input, 4 HDMI at TigerDirect.com

I recommend a google search for best prices, as mine are just quick searches.

Thanks for the response, I went ahead and got a 42" hannspree for really good price, less than 500. My only issue now is I would need to buy a new motherboard because I need to get sound via the hdmi output. Currently I do not have a hdmi connection on my htpc. Simply buying and installing a graphics card with a hdmi connection will not allow the audio to come thru the tv.

oh well most of the time audio sucks on TVs. I would have bought an audio system a while ago, you can find one that isn't too expensive. 100-200$ should get you a really good one in fact, lots of base and happiness.

OR you can replace your whole motherboard. up to you
