Default would this be a good monitor?

I know its a tv but i know how to hook it up to my pc without the svideo on the tv.

I have a special box that hooks svideo from my pc to that box and the 3 av go from the box to the tv and trust me it works great.

So back to the subject will that be a good monitor?

Is it flat or is that just the screen?

Just the screen is flat. It is a CRT. Not a good idea for computer use.

a 100$ tv? i dun think its worth the money, in fact its a waste of money, add like another 100 and get a good CRT or 17" LCD.

The refresh rate and resolution will be so low you would have to sit at least 5 feet away from it or it will kill your eyes. Get a 17" CRT if 100.00 is all you can afford.
