Default looking for television/monitor....

My computer monitor got a littttleee thirsty last night and deicided to take a sip of some relaxing water..... ::sigh::



Now i'm looking for a television that I can mount on my wall. Something from 26"-32" would be sufficent. I would like at least 720p. Now what I really want is for it to be able show output from my computer (I have SLi connection with two nVidia 9800's), be able to switch to my television, switch to my dvd player, etc, etc..



The main thing I'm looking for is good output display from my computer.



Any suggestions would be HIGHLY appriciated! thank you very much!

Main thing is, what is your budget? Cos that will be the main factor in which TV you get.

Look into Samsungs and Toshibas, and try your best to get a 1080p, 26-32".

With that budget you're probably better off getting a good 24" or 28" monitor.

Something like this, though that's the top of your budget:
Newegg.com - ASUS VW266H Black 25.5" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 (ASCR 20000:1) Built in Speakers w/ component connector - LCD Monitors

Seeing as most stuff like DVD players now use HDMI cables, monitors are now finally converging back together with TVs

That's the monitor I was saving for before I got my netbook, it's just so awesome
