Default Tv/Monitor?

I'm wondering if anyone knows of a Monitor that also doubles as a tv? I'm looking for a combo of the two that has HDTV so I can plug in my ps3 to it when it comes out. I'm not sure if such a tv/monitor exists, but if one does could I get a link to it?

Just a high resolution TV is what youd need. But those are very spendy... prolly need 1080p or so TV to get great computer graphics. And need a vid card with TV out as anything out for the last couple years does have. But to run a big screen such as a TV, vid card will need some power to it as well.

There are plenty of LCD/TV's on the market that can be used as monitors. Thing is, you have to have a very high-end videocard if you want to game on them.

As long as you have a video card with DVI output you should be able to connect it to any TV with HDMI or DVI input.

Personally, what I have is a Denon A/V Receiver with HDMI switching, so I can run everything into the receiver and out into my 19" widescreen monitor using DVI.

I was browsing around and found these as a hdtv/monitor a few people have them at the gamestop forums and they like it, You can get them at best buy. Westinghouse

zThey have ones that run at 720p and 1080p.
