Happy holidays to you to, Now I have a few of suggestions for you.
1: HD CRT Television.
Pros: If you can get a hold of a HD CRT TV CRT TV's have absolutely no picture lag and are technically speaking optimal for gaming. Also you will have no issue with any burn in from your desktop. Not too hard to find free from people who want to get rid of them. Long Life Span.
Cons: Outdated, Probably no HDMI, Large in Size, May need to adjust convergence to align picture properly which can take a while.
2: DLP Rear Projecton.
Pros: Refresh rate is measured in Nanoseconds instead of milliseconds meaning virtually no picture lag, no burn in, relatively cheap, try to stick with a higher end Mitsubishi for optimum picture quality.
Cons: Large in size, Becoming outdated as far as a set top television, usually only available in sizes 73" and above, not much brand choice. Have to replace bulb every few years.
3: LED/LCD TV
When you get to the flat panels this is kind of tricky because they are measured in milliseconds instead of nanoseconds for refresh rates and this is crucial. Your cheap LED's like Vizio and Insignia and all that chinese junk will have refresh rates from 120hz-480hz which truthfully is just unacceeptable for good gaming. Try and stick with a higher end LED TV That has 960hz Like the 8000 series samsungs or the XBRhx950 from sony which is a beautiful television. The problem with these sets is you will be spending a minimum of 2500-3000 dollars.
4: Plasma TV
Plasmas can be a good option because they offer the best picture quality out of a flat panel, have a 600hz refresh rate which is acceptable for gaming, and are by far the cheapest. Burn in can be an issue with a desktop with a lower end plasma but most GOOD plasma TV's now a days you will not have an issue with burn in.
5: DLP Front Projector
Refer to the information for the DLP Tv's. Same information except larger viewing area is required.
I have listed these in order of what is technically best for gaming on a large screen. Not taking price, picture quality ect. as a factor. Purely Gaming optimization.
