I don't know if I want to get a computer LCD screen or a LCD TV. What differs them? Of course, the TV has a tuner and the PC screen don't. But other than that?

I want a LCD screen for Playstation and television, and I would want it to be usable as a PC screen too. Can one screen do all that?

I asked in a shop and the man there said that a Playstation can't use a PC screen and a PC can't use a TV. Maybe he's right, but he couldn't explain anything so I don't trust him too much.


Anyone tried to watch TV on the PC through a TV card? How does this compare to a regular TV?

If you have a PC with an HDMI port and a reasonable graphics card, it shouldn't be too much of a problem, but there might be a limit on the screen size that your graphics card can support, so it may be worth a bit of googling first. If your PC doesn't have an HDMI port, go for a TV with a VGA port. You will still need to find out what size screen your card supports though. As for the Playstation, it can use any screen with an HDMI, so you can pretty much disreguard what the tool in the shop said.
