    I've posted this also on another category because I wasn't sure if it was the right category for this. But I'll have it posted this too on here.

    Ok, so my past threads were about just monitors, and I decided to buy the 27in monitor instead of the 23.6/24in monitor. Mainly for gaming and mostly watching a lot of movies/videos.

    27in ASUS: $280: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824236091

    40in TV TCL: $320: http://www.amazon.com/L40FHDF12TA-40...dp_ob_title_ce

    The price of the tv on how much size it increases is such a bargain. But ASUS is a well-known brand and from reviews it works very well. The TV however has 3 hdmi's, it's perfect. I can connect my ps3, tv reciever and probably my pc. If i'm going to get that 40in tv, The TV will be about 2 feet away from me when I'm playing games on pc (it'll be my monitor, in fact.) but then watching movies I'll be on my bed (about 9 feet away from where the tv/monitor will be placed) and obviously the 40in will be perfect size, i guess. The ASUS will be best for gaming, but the 40in will be best for watching movies or probably a bit of gaming. Which is worth buying? is the 40in worth buying for $40 more if I'm going to be playing it on pc games, and watch movies from my ps3?
