Here's a good one:
Newegg.com - Westinghouse Silver & Black 37" 16:9 8ms 1080p LCD HDTV Model LVM-37W3SE

@ 1080p resolution, you'll be do your thing at 1920 x 1080, so if you game, make sure you videocard can handle it.

Now if you don't need that big of a resolution:
Newegg.com - SCEPTRE Black&Silver 37" 16:9 8ms Wide Screen LCD HDTV w/ Built-in ATSC/QAM/NTSC Tuner with HDMI Input Model X37SV-Komodo

@ 720p you'll be doing your thing at 1366 x 768, thats less pixels than 19" 1440 by 990, you won't need such a good videocard games.
