Default Sony 46" Bravia As PC Monitor.....56 K Warning

Well, I messed around with getting our 46" HDTV hooked up to the pc yesterday.....It took awhile....but in the end i finally got it figured out and we played CSS....UT3....FarCry 2.....Links 2003.....Nascar Racing 2003 and last night some Audio Surf.

This is really an awsome set up and I envy anyone who can use something like this for an everyday monitor....it truely is beautiful in full 1080 P

Sound was most of my problem in hooking it up, as I was trying to get sound from the tv, when it is much easier to just use some pc speakers.

Anyone who can use there HDTV for a monitor....it really is well worth it.

Who's that girl in the picture? lol jk

In about 2.5 weeks i'm gonna buy a 46"-52" tv and i'll be able to do this. Isn't CSS hard to play? you have a lot of surface to cover. lol i guess everything is bigger so it's easier to see movement.
