I am looking for a new tv for my room, my xbox 360 will be played on it so it needs to be HD. I have a very limited budget so I would like the cheapest. I dont care if it is rear projection, dlp, lcd, plasma, of course it cant be tube though.

Thanks,
Trevor

hmm i don't know if this post belongs here, but that's not for me to decide.

anyways, costco had a deal with a 32" philips aquos built-in HDTV($200 off)
it came out to be about 900 (but u only get the $200 coupon if you are a member of course)

browse through the best buy catalog. i know westinghouse is coming out with very cheap and high quality lcd hdtvs.

if you are VERY limited in budget you could always get the samsung slimfit hdtv

If you want 1080p you aren't going to find anything cheap. If you don't care, there are cheap Visio TVs around. Just go to best buy and shop around?

Careful with those vizo though. Some say HDTV because they can input an HD signal, but only display 1024x768.

768 is HD, most sets have not gone to 1080p yet. Some of these cheap sets only support 480p

768 alone does not equal HD. 768 @ 16:9 aspect ratio would [that would mean 1280x768].

Thus 1024x768 is not HD. Which is what some 'HDTVs' advertise.

Sorry Blaskillet4, I checked online after I made the post. I was 100% wrong. Thanks for the info.
