I am ordering the components to build a new PC. I would like to use a 40-42" HDTV as my monitor. Going to be using the AMD HD 7850 video card, or close to that, which has HDMI output.
Are there any of the current crop of TV's that are better as monitors that others? Are there any to stay away from?
Does type of back lighting matter (ccfl or led)?
I am guessing a fairly low response time would be preferred.
Most demanding tasks would be gaming and possibly some video editing.
I would like to stay within the $500 - $700 range if possible.
I found some older threads on this topic but they are a couple of years old and would not cover any of the current TV's.
Thanks in advance.
