I'm confused. In the OP you say you want it for your 360 :ermm: . I think you could use an HD monitor for any computer you want but it won't be able to use it to its full potential.
Yes, I don't want it for a gaming PC, but I do wanna play the 360 on it. I'm fine with not using it to its full potential, really.
Is your Graphics Card good? Does it have an HDMI port?
The monitor I'm planning to buy has an HDMI port, yes, I'm not sure about graphics card, it's probably average.
With monitors they should tell you the maximum resolution, the good ones will be far more then 1920 x 1080(30" at a maximum of 2560 x 1600 normally). What are you looking at getting.
You can always tell the PC to use a lower resolution if you want to. But yes, the higher the resolution the more strain it takes on the graphics card in general, although this will only become apparent while gaming. Where again you can normally lower the resolution, turn off aa, af, etc.
What's your graphics card?
Also remember that if you're planning on watching blue ray movies over you need to make sure the graphics card is HDCP compliant and so forth.
HP 2509m Black 25" 3ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen Full HD 1080p LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DC 60000:1(1000:1) Built-in Speakers
is the monitor I'm planning on getting.
I'm not planning on watching movies at all, all I want the monitor for really is the 360. I don't plan on buying the Monitor to game on PC (meaning, play PC games on a gaming rig etc.)
I should have included in the title "360" since I wasn't referring to gaming on the PC.
My graphics card is S3 Graphics Prosavage DDR, although I'm not sure if this piece of information is relevant to my question.
