My monitor is 26", it has a resolution of 1920x1200 and it can double as a television because it has a seperate port for a cable or connection to other forms of TV. I find it to still be sharp enough with a big screen, yet the resolution isn't killing my games to low FPS. Instead of being a TV which can work as a decent monitor, this is a monitor like others, but which makes a rather nice TV. Televisions often have worse resolution. So did I once have a 30" or so television which could double as monitor but which was only able to handle a resolution of I think 1280 x 960 or even only 1024 x 768. Things got very pixelated.
