I'm moving into a new place tomorrow and the one big thing on my mind is a new TV. I am an avid PC gamer. BF3, Dark Souls, Counter Strike and more come to mind, so input lag is something I'd like to stray from. I have a ton of blu ray's, and I also would like to watch some UFC PPV's in HD as well. With that said I'm trying to find the absolute best TV for me in this price range. I'd like to get 47" or bigger, but I don't want to sacrifice quality of picture for a few extra inches, not sure if that matters.
The only HD monitor I have is my 23" PC monitor by Acer which has a 5ms response time, so something similar or better would be preferred. I know it's not that great I got it about 5 years ago. Definitely looking forward to a big screen and seeing what kind of options you guys recommend. Tomorrow is Labor Day and I'm hoping one of those $1000+ sets prices get slashed significantly enough for me to make a purchase.
Please if you can help a first time HDTV buyer it would be appreciated.
