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?

My mate tried to connect his netbook to a 40" LCD and all it would display was his wallpaper without any icons etcetera, or a static image.

Weird.


For a PC screen, what's the best format of 16:10 and 16:9? What's best for games?
My current screen is 4:3 and I have no experience with modern PC games. Maybe they adapt to the screen format and resolution.

I have not upgraded the hardware the last ten years, and my knowledge is about as outdated as the hardware. I appreciate the help.
