If you are using this build as a media center just so you can watch some HD movies and have lots of storage, then you are spending about $600 too much lol. I am assuming that you want to game on this though so I would recommend you take my suggestion of getting a monitor.
I completely agree, LCD monitors crush PLASMA and LCD's in visual quality by far. As Pinscher said, they have more PPI, higher resolution, larger color spectrum display, etc,etc. If you do want the LCD TV that much I would suggest getting a decent (24"/1920x1200) monitor to game and surf the internet on and then the LCD as your TV and to watch movies from your computer on.
