Default lcd monitors, tvs, a big mess! help

hey guys.

so here's the deal; i need to get a new display for my PC before i go back to school (in about 3 weeks). i would like your input about the following models im considering.

syntax olevia lt27hvx
acer al2016w
refurb philips 26" lcd tv

my main goal is to have something large that i can watch standard cable on (i have a pci tuner) and clear enough to use Word/AIM when i have to type. i was also interested in maybe getting an HDTV tuner... but that remains to be seen.

i've also got a few questions...
do dvd players (i use a DVD+/- RW) display in 1080i?
and is widescreen in general a good idea for a PCs?

im open to suggestions too! my price range is about 600 bucks, give or take.

thanks everyone!
