Youll probably be better off buying a proper plasma/lcd tv once you get to those sizes.

Jeez, how close to that thing would you sit? I wouldn't want to have it on a normal computer desk.

It is a bit of a budget monitor, so keep that in mind. Thinks to look for in a monitor:

Response time - the lower the better (2ms is about standard)
Contrast Ratio - the higher the better (1000:1 is about standard, not including dynamic)
Resolution - depends on the size, your 4850 might have trouble with some games at higher settings at 1920x1200

This stuff mainly applies to smaller monitors, so for a 28" its not too bad. Personally i would go a 24" though.

Great find but don't use the onscreen speakers it can cause vibrations which inturn cause dead pixels not fun . Hanns-G is a budget brand but providing you have googled the reviews enough to be happy go for it. Your money at the end othe day I bought a 700 monitor that is only 24" and the same resolution because I simply liked it .
