I'm looking into buying an HDTV, and for my price range, x < ~500-600, I wanted to get a 32in set. At points I'm going to want to use the tv as a dual screen setup with my computer.

I've noticed that nearly all 32in 720p TV screens are in a resolution of 1366 X 768. I've done a little research and found that this is technically a 16:9 aspect ratio after the TV cheats a little bit.

My concern in buying a 1366 X 768 TV is when I set up my brother and his TV/computer setup that when the computer was the main screen, the TV would have a "scrolling" effect so you had to scroll to see the entire screen, only about an inch or so off.

I'm not sure if this is because his computer was a lame COSTCO build or whether his resolution, which was a true 16:9 had anything to do with it.

So if I hook up my laptop with a resolution of 1280 X 800 will it scroll with a TV running 1366 X 768?

I am not sure why it would be scrolling but did your TV had a vga connection? May be you just need to go into graphics control panel and set the mode to clone and not dual view?....not sure if I am following your problem. I am currently using a 40" samsung with 1360x768 res and I have hooked up my laptop several times and I never had any problems with it.

i've got my 50 inch tv hooked up at 1360x768 res and i havent had any problems and gaming looks amazing on it. Paid only $800 for the TV but newegg as jacked up the price since then: Link. I saved a bunch of money not going for 1080P also saved alot of money not having to buy a bad ass card to play at 1080P. I just set AA and AF to 8x, turn on transparent Aliasing and damn man the shit looks good.

So what you need to do is skip the 32 inch man. xD... Go right for the 50
