Hello everyone, the challenge I have for you today is the 48 inch Samsung UN48J6200 HDTV I would like to use for gaming (120 Hz, 7.8 ms), (I am aware of ppi being an issue for using A TV as a gaming window.) I need a PC that will be able to run games on high-ultra settings on this TV. (PS2, ARMA III, FALLOUT 4)

-I'm in Tallahassee Florida, USA.

-This will be used 100% for Gaming only.

-I am looking for HIGH quality parts, by means of any shape/form. I will be using a theater surround sound system.

-Any tips or advice would be helpful!

-As for imbedded discussion what are your experiences with TV gaming, are you a fan? I have a friend that has a set-up that will completely consume you. There are drawbacks though as your eyes can only move so fast, and the pixel density can be an issue.

I noticed a monitor on there. Is there a hidden message there? HaHaHaHa

Maybe ;D I just prefer gaming with a monitor because of refresh rates and responses times and display res. for optimum gaming comfort :)
