A simple question for serious gamers out there. Are monitors required for high level gaming? I have always played on a TV set. I currently have a Panasonic TC-P42S1 and I recently saw a post about monitors. Do all the high level players play on monitors and do they make that big of a difference? I don't know what the input lag is on this particular model but it does have a game mode. Would those extra lost frames be significant enough against those high level opponents? I work often and when I am home and management to find time to play, I want to be as competitive as possible. So if monitors are more necessary to achieve this, it might be worth the investment.
