    well see i would, but it needs to be a 1680x1050 as i will be playing games and it will be a computer monitior but, it also needs to have a tv tuner built in and i seem to be kind of limited in choices for something like that.

    Manufacturer WarrantyWarranty is provided through manufacturer only

    I have not been pleased doing video stuff mail order. That's a lot of money for an unknown brand and no extended egg warantee. It also does not say what the return policy is on the item.

    Personally I'm buying video equipment locally from now on even if it means 20-30% extra.

    sure you could ... i think any standard HDTV tuner with DVI output would suffice on a monitor. Dont hold me to that though. That is an interesting proposition you have here.

    well you will not find a dedicated tv monitor in that resolution. HDTV is 1280x720 or 1920x1080.

    seems the second option would fit the bill being a 1080p lcd is relatively ez to find but not in teh budget you specified.
