    I want to buy a new screen for my computer.

    Right now I have a 1440x900 resolution, which sucks.

    I want the screen to use my computer but also for playing some games and watch good movies like the upcoming avengers on bluray.

    What do you recommend?

    30" high resolution (2560x1600)
    http://www1.la.dell.com/content/top...opics/monitor-dell-u3011?c=pa&l=es&cs=pabsdt1

    or

    37" full hd + 3d + smart tv
    http://www.lg.com/es/television/lg-37LM620s-3d

    I saw the 3D TV and it looks great. Also the image queality is awesome, but isn't it too big for using the pc?

    Need help!!
    Thanks.

    The TV is overkill, go for the 30" high resolution. Or better yet, two 23" or something.

    Yes, I also was thinking about getting dual or tri way screen, but I guess it's difficult to setup and my graphic card is also shit, new to buy a new computer soon with 4 ssd on raid 0, that's would be awesome.

    I'm looking for something between entertainment + computer using, like the Mac screen.

    It depends what pc do you have. If powerful enough, then go for dual-monitor.

    If you are going to use the screen for your PC, please do not be stupid and buy that TV, unless you connect via HDMI you will get a shit resolution and on top of that the TV does its own stupid post processing so the image is not 100% the cleanest. If you can look into getting an IPS panel screen if you want the best colour possible or for gaming just get an LCD/LED with 5ms or less response time. I have both types of screen one is a BenQ 24inch IPS Panel 1920x1080 and it is the most clearest screen and colour reproduction I have ever seen but for gaming it is shit 8ms response time I get ghosting on it. So my second screen is a 27inch Samsung LED SyncMaster SA350 not as good colour depth but perfect for gaming.

    I guess I will take this one: http://www.amazon.es/LG-32LM660S-TV/dp/B007JRGTC0
    (Page in Spanish, sorry)

    32" 3D ready, full HD, smart tv, 400Hz for 580€ on amazon.

    Mine is really shit, i'm going to sell it on ebay or something for 20€ or less, with a 1440x900 screen no matter what you open it will take all the screen. I need some multitask space + good quality to watch movies.

    Dual screen is not for me right now.

    If I buy it maybe will post some pics here.

    Next thing is going to be a 4ssd computer, ultra fast.

    Something important so say:
    I'm going to buy a new screen for my PC with money earned thanks to BHW!!

    You know it would be best to go for a screen designed for computers, but hey its your money you spend it how you like. You may find you have to be quite far away from the screen TV are not designed for close range viewing like a desktop monitor. I would say get go for a dedicated monitor if your just using your computer you may run into image scaling problems and stuff.

    I would avoid using a TV as a monitor. TVs aren't designed to show text without strain... trust me, I have a 55" LG and no matter what settings I use, how far I sit or anything... it's hard to read.

    If you multi-task alot, get dual/tri monitors from Asus, Acer or Hanns-G with a 1920x1080 res. It'll help alot and I cannot go back to a single monitor myself. I would suggest using HDMI to connect so you may need to upgrade your video card.
    Going for the 2560x1600 is sometimes a good choice but if you play games on it, you will hate it. I don't know of many games that support that resolution and down-sampling to 1920x1080 (or the larger sizes equivilant) will reduce quality. If the game does support it, the video card will be straining to play the game unless you're rocking one of the newer, high-end cards.
