I built my computer about 18 months ago designed for gaming. I am using a SAPPHIRE TOXIC HD5850
for my video card which has 2xDual-Link DVI, 1xHDMI, and 1xDisplay Port outputs. I have 2 monitors hooked up right now (via the 2xDual-Link DVIs) and the time has come to upgrade one of my monitors. The plan is to get a new #1 monitor, start using my current #1 Monitor as my #2 Monitor and get rid of my current #2 Monitor.
My question is, with a $500 budget, is it reasonable to consider buying a TV (such as this one
) with HDMI and/or Display port to use as my monitor 1? Or should I just stick with a computer monitor
Thanks in advance for any help. =)
extra info: This is more of a generic question than a specific choice between the two options linked above. They are just examples for what is available within my price range.
