Hi guys. Having recently upgraded to a larger smart tv, I was wondering if I could use my redundant tv as a game monitor. It is also a smart tv but only 40 inches diagonal. My pc is more or less up to date with a fast cpu and a nvidia graphics card 1070ti. Anyone had a similar experience which they could share?

Not sure what a 'smart' TV is but assuming it's just a regular 1080p TV there's no reason you can't use it. It will look pretty fuzzy if you sit close up, though. I use 32" TVs for my display and I'd say they're about as big as you want to go with 1080p. CPU and graphics card are irrelevant, anything can drive a 1080p display these days.

Mark, a smart TV is one with an Ethernet connection and some built-in apps allowing you to watch YouTube videos on a large display rather than smaller computer monitors.

My 55” OLED is ‘smart’ and YT videos look great, especially the 4K ones.

I agree that image quality on a TV is not going to be ideal but maybe the sheer size will help with immersion.
