Whats best for my use?



I am going to be buying either an HDTV or a Widescreen Monitor.

I am planning on running an Xbox 360 along with a Computer on the same monitor. I am going to be hookiing it up to a VGA Switcher.

My question is:
If I buy an HDTV like a Dell or Samsung, would it look good with a PC on it? Like would it look similar to a good monitor? The resolutions I have been looking into are 1366x768 or 1920x1080. Both are widescreen. I want it to be wide screen capable because Its going to be used with the xbox 360 alot.

Also, I dont know much about computers, and I have the following question. I have a PNY 6600 Video card with DVI and VGA outputs.. Does it matter which one I use? Which one will give me better picture? I am going to be running it at the monitors max native resolution.

Any suggestions on this topic? I would really appreciate any help.

Thank you,

I got the Samsung LE40F71B. It's a 40 inch 1080p TV. I use it as my computer monitor, as well as connnected to my xbox360 and PS3.

It looks great as a computer monitor, I have connected through VGA. There is no input lag or ghosting or anything like that. It's great.
