Can a monitor do this?

For the holidays I was thinking of getting a small HDTV for my room, however, I was also interested in setting up another monitor.

Is there a monitor that you can watch cable TV on, play video games on, and also use as a secondary computer monitor?

I currently have a Syncmaster 205BW, can that do anything with cable/video games?

your best bet is to get a TV with pc input rather than looking for a monitor with tv reciever in it

I'd say just pick up a TV tuner for your PC. It's just a PCI card, and you can plug cable into it to get TV on your computer.

A. You can get a VGA cord for most consoles.

B. Some monitors have component / composite inputs on them.

C. Lots of TV tuners have component / composite inputs.
