    Hi Silver

    I'd like to sugest a cheaper (and better tv/monitor) Samsung LE22B350
    22" LCD TV Freeview HD Ready 1366x768 1xHDMI PC Input 1xSCART Black 1
    Year Warranty ( it does not have a
    dvd player but you already probably have one, if not you can get one for
    around £10-15 ether from the same site or from a supermarket.

    on the remote there will be a button called PC you just press that to
    switch between TV and PC, you can use your existing PC monitor cable to
    connect to the TV, you may have to purchase a Stereo to Stereo jack for
    pc sound (£3 from maplin or supermarket)

    Good Luck
