Just run a lower contrast when you have static images showing.
I am in the process of building a new PC, and I believe
that the nVidia GPU I am getting will have an option to adjust for overscan. However, I just read in the GT50 manual that the set "was not designed (or intended) to connect a PC via HDMI", which was very worrisome for me, as my current TV will not allow PC via HDMI at all (is why I wish to replace it).

Thank you, this makes me feel slightly better about plasma? A slight drop in PQ with game mode will certainly be tolerable, especially if the pixel rotation will help quell IR.
If I do go plasma though, I am still on the fence regarding: ST50 (16ms, but bad with ambient light) vs. GT50 (30ms could be unplayable, but fares better with ambient light). Tough decisions
Ideally, would love to have a 55"-60" monitor
, with (4) HDMI inputs that fares well in ambient light
Anyone know where I can get this for ~$3k budget?
