    Does anyone game with their PC on a 37-42" 1080p TV?

    I don't, but plenty of people do - although with a TV you sit a lot further back. Bear in mind that the resolution of a 30" PC screen is much higher than that of a TV. Dell's new 3008WFP looks very tasty according to the initial reviews. :)

    The Dell 30" has a really great resolution but a really big price, too.

    TVs have a small(er) resolution, so you might get some headache about sitting too close to it. But look at the price tag compared to the 30" Dell!

    I played games on my 36" LCD, it ran in HD aswell, but where the TV is positioned meant I would have to get another wireless keyboard and mouse, and I havn't bothered to yet! I'd much rather have a bigger monitor anyway... Go for the 30" Dell, but make sure you have a stunning system to be able to play at that resolution...

    1080p/i = 1,920x1,080
    Dell 3007WFP = 2560x1600

    ive been playing on my 720p projector at 80" recently, trackmania ultimate looks great :)

    upside of the 1080p screens is you dont need SLI or an Ultra to get decent framerates....
