if you get a 1920 x 1080 (1080p) tv. my native res is standard 1680 x 1050 (22")

did you get a cheap one?????

I thought 1920 X 1080 was the standard nowadays..

Well see, there you go, at least I kick some booty in that regard......

Sigh. Monitors and TV's have differnt standards. TV's have fewer standards. They are consolidated into 3 groups, SDTV, HDTV, and FHDTV. PC monitors use native res more rigidly. Most 22" are 1680 x 1050, most 24" are 1920 x 1200, most 30" are 2560 x 1600 and so on

Well, see, then I'm getting almost the same as a standard 24"....it's just that I can see it from a lot farther away....

I could play PCSX 2 in BED if I wanted too....

Cause my bed is at the other end of the room whereas the TV would be in front of the desk at the other end...

The standard isn't 1680x1050 (unless you meant for your monitor size). The standard is 1024x768 and 1280x1024. It'll move to 1680x1050 next I would guess, which would begin the shift towards a widescreen standard.

Gameman, i forgot to state the obvious, if you are going to get a hdtv and use it for computing, don't get a plasma.

There will probably be burn in eventually. The manufacturers certainly have reduced the burn in problem in recent years. But they haven't eliminated it. You are going to be using your computer for hours on end with the start menu on the screen. Eventually it will burn in. Get an LCD.

I played Crysis using a TV once. My neck hurt for two days.
you also played a video of haruhi once on an hdtv and your wrist hurt for 2 days :nod: :)

I meant the res affixed to certain pc monitor (lcd) sizes

Once again.

Widescreen Monitors. - 16:10
1440x900
1680x1050
1920x1200

TVs - 16:9
1024x768
1366x768
1920x1080
Well then I opt for that last one......1920 X1080 is more than sufficient...


I ain't gonna have a million icons on my desktop you know, like masta G there... - just enough to filll up the one side - I can put about 20 safely on the Trinitron 800 by 600, so probably 40 at most.... and yess I like large taskbar buttons and a double system tray...if I really need the maximum, then my parents got an extra 22" HDMI lying around....

Oh, and PCXL, no plasma eh???

Too bad, cause they got a 50" for 900.00 with a vga connection (pc input))...would be sweet - but I ain't settling for BURN IN.....:dead::dead::dead::dead::dead:

Why do you want to blow 900 on a TV that will be used primarily for a pc. i dont get
Cause on weekends, except for now of course and evenings, say after 5 it's used mainly AS A TV....

I just liike a big monitor, and not "big" as in 24"/32" etc...

...I mean ****ING big......

I want the full 42 inches baby..............

And YES, that's what she said..................

:lol:
Normally my desktop is very clean, but I was in the process of ripping my remaining Wii and Gamecube games. I just stream them via wifi from my Wii straight to my laptop's desktop. Later on I'll copy them to my external backup HDD.

Also, the reason I keep mentioning that WXGA sucks is because if you buy a flat screen TV with a native res of 1366x768 (WXGA), you might as well have just purchased a crappy $100 PC LCD screen. Settling with a 720p HDTV is also pointless because it's even lower resolution than WXGA.

Then she saw it and replied 4.2 INCHS!?! you ****ing liar!

Size doesn't mean **** , if it's big and still looks like **** you just wasted your pay cheque on a big steaming pile of **** in TV form..

Also haven't we gone over the fact that if you sit farther away from it and it's bigger it's going to have the same effect as if you sit closer to it and it's smaller , do you even listen to our posts.. or do you just go ME WANTIE BIG!!! BIG ME WANTIE!! GIVES ME BIG!!? , what's the point in buying a 50inch and then running the resolution at ****ing 800x600 or 1024x768? If you want big icons , big fonts , big text , big this , big that , turn the ****ing icons up , turn the ****in font size up , use large icons in your startmenu , use large icons in your task bar , increase the font size in IE/Firefox/Safari/Opera etc or try getting some better vision, even if an icon/font or text is uber small I can still see it from 5-10 feet away and you should be able to if you arn't a grandpa and don't wear adult diapers, the human eye can focus on minuit details, thus you would be able to see it from that far away, not only because your vision is quite capable of seeing detail from that far away , but also because even though the resolution is higher it has a large surface area and the icons and text are going to be regardlessly bigger and easier to see..

Not quite. They still take 720P video sources, their scaler just translates it into 1024x768. Wide, but low res
Correct.

And to expand on this topic, 1024x768 is a 4:3 resolution, but only if square pixels are used. Widescreen displays that have a 1024x768 native resolution use rectangular pixels to make them widescreen.
