Default TV/PC Monitor

I'm going to get a new computer and I need a new TV aswell, so I was thinking about buying a processor seperately and an LCD TV with PC connection capability, is this a good idea, is there some sort of problem with these things?, should i just buy a PC Package with a screen?.

I found this one on amazon, what do you think?

well tv's dont have very high resolutions so you will be better off with a seperate monitor and television although you could always buy a tuner card and just watch tv through the computer on the monitor

If you get an LCD with good resolution you'll be fine.

i'd disagree. 1440 by 900 is just fine for a 19" monitor. 1680 by 1050 is really for 20" and up.

if you want to get that monitor, you will be more than happy with your purchase IMO.
