    Loewe Aconda will do it with the VGA card, otherwise it is a plasma, LCD or an actual computer monitor. I'm unsure about Grundig. Metz tv might also do it as well but they aren't very good at answering technical questions.

    I'm looking for a TV that I can also use as a decent monitor for text. My options seem limited to plasma or the non-existent HDTV. Can anyone advise me further? How about the Loewe and Grundigs, are they any good for at least 800x600?

    I tried hooking my PC up to my Sony FD1 a year or so ago & it didn't really work as VGA resolution wasn't good enough. Especially with text, it was giving me a headaches!

    The Loewe Aconda works great as a PC monitor. I run mine at 848x480@60Hz, text is very sharp. I run all my video through the VGA port using a HTPC.

    Cheers for the input. I'm now looking at the Loewe Vitros.

    Jeff, is the 60hz refresh a graphics card limitation or is it a constraint of the TV?
