Re: tv for moniter?
You should probably take into account how far away you are going to be from the TV for the resolution. I found on my 1080p TV the words were much too small while surfing the net unless I was 6 or closer feet on a 42". For my htpc I have it connected to a 720p 42" so I can use itunes or whatever without having to get closer to the screen.
