You need to find a TV that will have an input that is compatible with your PC. While MoM is right and most TV's do come with an SVGA port, there are few that I have seen at a lower cost that come with DVI. They should all have at least 1 HDMI, but your PC might not have that connection. So you are looking at the good chance you will have to use a DVI to SVGA adapter or DVI to HDMI to connect the TV to the PC. Again this all comes down to the connections available on both devices.
Yes TV's come with a Gloss Screen. Samsung has them. I know that one for a fact. You can get a 32" Samsung LCD HDTV for about $300 at Walmart. You do need to give a price range though as TV's are going to be a bit more expensive and the size range is going to factor in as well. Most 22" LCD and LED HDTV's I have seen dont have a gloss screen.
