Question LCD Monitor or LED TV for Desktop Computer


I recently purchased an old HPE-210Y Desktop with the ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card installed. I would like to have a large screen display for the desktop, but I want it to be clear and to fit proportionality on the monitor screen.

I am currently considering buying a 29 inch LCD monitor display or a 32 inch LED 720p Television. I was hoping someone on this forum could provide me with guidance as to which purchase would be a better option.

I do not play video games, but I do watch a lot of You Tube videos and surf the net. The desktop also has a blue ray player. Thanks.

Here is the link to the HP website that contains the computer specifications.

If you want clarity, then you don't want a TV for display. A 1080p monitor will give you the best visual quality without spending a ton of money.
