Should I buy a 32" LCD TV or 26" Display monitor?!

I want to get a monitor to use with my PC & PS3!

I know it's much better for the PS3 to just get the bigger monitor, but I heard for the PC gaming & videos, it won't be the better resolution with the bigger monitors!

Please, I need your help as quick as possible.

Thank you.

Generally speaking, PC monitor only goes up to 30" and those are 2560 x 1600 resolution. 1920 x 1200 or 1920 x 1080 monitors typically maxes out at 27". New 27" monitors are starting to be 2560 x 1440 resolution. - from the following LINK enter link description here

I am not a gamer so others may have different views. Like you I am aware that you will be okay using your PS3 on a bigger screen (my son uses his with a 40in TV) without any problems but as regards a bigger monitor for gaming I am of the view that your set up must be capable of handling it - ie: is your Graphics card "up to scratch"

Well! I forgot to say about the PC's VGA card, It's ATI 6670!

Well looking at the Review and Specification of your card I would say it is more than capable of achieving your aim - enter link description here

AND from this LINK - The HD 6670 is capable of playing modern games at reasonable resolutions, and feels much more like a gamer's card than the far slower HD 6450. It's also a significant improvement over the HD 5670 it replaces. If you want to be sure of smooth gaming on a 24-inch monitor for the foreseeable future you should find the extra £30 for the HD 6790, but if you're gaming on a tight budget this is the graphics card to have. enter link description here
