    HD TVs have the same resolution as monitors now, which is usually higher than the xbox games, most are 720p anyway. Just about all 1080 TVs will work as a monitor too. 1080p as opposed to 1080i seems most favoured.

    Have one for my Son’s Xbox but don’t think he has watched TV on it ever!

    Reckon I’d go for a monitor if it was PC gaming though because I bet they have a better refresh rate. Although plasma is supposed to be best for console games because of the contrast.

    What is best for PC and Xbox gaming a dedicated Monitor or is a TV just as good ? and what do I need to look for spec wise

    Computing and gaming is my sons thing ( much to my annoyance 🙂 ) but he is running around with the Scout’s right now, so it’s not all bad. He is getting the monitor/ TV for his Birthday and seems to think a dedicated monitor is best, I was thinking that a TV would be more flexible and that the manufacturers put more effort into tv’s. It will be a combined present from us, Grandma and uncles so I reckon around £200 ish.
