Help Me, Tom’s Guide: Which TV Can I Use as a Gaming Monitor?


It’s a question that’s plagued humankind since the dawn of time — or at least, since televisions started coming standard with PC visual hookups: “Can I use a TV as a gaming monitor?” Observe what our forum user namaste2u had to say:

What TV specs do I need to look for to use it as a computer monitor?” (Short and sweet. We like it.)

First and foremost, you can use almost any TV as a gaming monitor, provided the set has the right ports. However, that doesn’t mean you should just pick up any old model at Best Buy and assume that the rest will take care of itself. While TVs offer a variety of benefits over standard gaming monitors, there’s a reason most PC gamers prefer to stick with smaller screens that have more-dedicated hardware.
