Default Changing Monitor....

From my Samsung to a Gateway 22"

both are the same screen size but the gateway has more input options like S-video, component and composite thus giving me the ability to watch tv on it and use consoles too.

CompUSA.com - Gateway FPD2275W 22-inch LCD Monitor - Monitors Flat Panel (LCD)

Thats the monitor I will get. My Samsung which i bought at Newegg has one dead pixel. Luckily i rebought it at CompUSA and bought a replacement plan so I can exchange it with another 22" monitor and since both are the same price (at cost that is with my discount) i can get the gateway monitor at no extra cost.

Is it a good deal or not? Should i just keep my samsung or go with the gateway?

Not worth it, go for a decent tv tuner and you'll get DV-R.
