In the near future I am going to be going off to college and needing a new machine, but in the mean time I would like to purchase a monitor, or tv, speakers, and a DVD player that can stand alone for the time being that I can use to watch movies, and play video games.
My First question is, is it better to by an LCD Monitor to be used as a monitor and a stand alone TV, or an LCD TV to be used as a Monitor and a stand alone TV.
Second, this is what I have been looking at purchasing, will this function correctly as a stand alone TV till I can build my new machine and will this be a good monitor? It seems like it has all the inputs I could ever imagine, and the speakers look like they have a build in decoder so they won't require a sound card to get good sound.
