Full HD 1080p TV or Monitor?

Hello...
I'll soon be buying a new computer and would appreciate any thoughts on the following.
I'd originally intended buying a 22"or 24" good quality computer monitor.

However, I was wondering if it would be a better idea to buy the same size Full HD TV 1080p and use that instead, giving me the best of both worlds and allowing me to use TV as monitor and as a second unit.
Price difference doesn't appear to be much on first search.

I'm guessing connection is made via an HDMI lead from computer to TV. Yes/no?
Or is it best to go for a DVI connection?

At anyrate, I'd welcome any thoughts or suggestions, particularly from anyone who's already done this and could maybe recommend any specific Full HD 1080p TV's?
Many thanks
