How can I use my LCD TV as a Computer Monitor?

Using your LCD TV as a computer display can be great way to get 2 devices for the price of one. Here are some key factors to consider before getting an LCD TV to use a monitor:

Video Connection Options

Note: VGA is not recommended if HDMI or DVI are available. VGA will only accept lower resolutions

Display Resolution

Here is yet another reason to get a 1080p LCD TV

When you select a 1080p LCD TV, this allows your computer to display 1920 x 1080 native resolution. Translation: A TON OF DESKTOP. A 720 LCD TV will allow a resolution of 1280 x 720 to be run on your computer.

Don't forget your Video Card

A 1080p TV is of no use if you video card does not support the resolution. Make sure your computers video card supports your desired resolution, whether it be 1920x1080 or 1280x720.
