    Default LCD Monitor with TC card or LCD TV with computer imput

    As a newcomer to this site I wonder if this has been asked? I have a 17" CRT and am thinking of moving to an LCD screen . I also want TV to be available on the screen. Is it better to have an LCD monitor with a TV card or an LCD TV with computer input. I need to have a range of resolutions since the Grandkids have games that need 800x600. I don't play online games bur have Flight Simulator with a 3D graphics card. I have a good quality XP pentium 4 - 2.53Mhz 80 Gb Drive 256Mb Ram. I would want at least a 17" screen or 19". Grateful for advice. --Enkay

    A tv card within your computer will be a at least a couple hundred dollars cheaper and give you more options as far as recording and what-not is concerned,although this would mean running the computer in order to watch tv....

    LCD screens have a native resolution which they are designed to run at,a 17" would want to run at 1280X1024.
