22" LCD/TFT TV/Monitor

  1. Hi all

    I'm looking to buy a 22" LCD/TFT monitor that I could also use for watching TV. Would it be better to buy an all in one HDTV/PC monitor or to buy a monitor and a seperate tuner? The monitor will mainly be used to watch films/DVDs and to play games, however I may be investing in Sky HD in the near future.

    Im looking to spend roughly £150-£250, the current models I have been looking at are:

    LG M228WA
    LG L226WTQ
    Samsung SM226BW

    Can anyone please give me some advice about these models or recommend any similar models as I'm not really sure what to look for?

    How i do it

    I have a VisionQuest 22 '' VQL-22 INCH DVI-D with HDCP, Flat Panel,
    $350 CDN
    Next a Winfast PVR-TV PCI card with cable TV in,Software included.
    Model TV2000 XP Series Model 3.
    About $100 CDN.
    DVI-D cable sold seperatly at about $30.
    But in order to get the best results you need a Video card with a DVD-D
    connection.I have an ATI 9600 AGP.

    More details if needed.:D

    What are you useing in the PCI slots ?
    Is your 8600GTS an AGP card ?
    PVR's come in USB models,but i had bad results with mine.

    My graphics card is plugged into a PCI express, however it also covers up another PCI slot because its so thick. In the others I have a 5 port USB card and wireless network card. My motherboard is a MSI (Micro Star) MS-7093 (RS480M2-IL)
