I don't want to sound like a total noob, but frankly I am. When it comes to tv that is.

Now here is my issue.

I currently play my xbox 360 on a good 22 inch pc monitor with no problem, using my xbox vga cable. Now with all the ps3 deals of late (yeah I know ps4 coming) I am tempted to take the punt. Only problem is the vga connection issues with this console. So I though about buying a cheap enough 22-24 inch hd tv to play both consoles on. Only problem is most say refresh rate 50hz native.

This where my head hurts. I have read that some games need 60hz and read others that say this isn't a problem.

So at last there's my question, will buying a tv saying 50hz refresh rate native limit my gaming? If so I think I'll give the ps3 a miss.

Thank you for your time.

If the TV has a vga socket it will do 60Hz.

The XBox360 has HDMI, connect it to a modern TV via that and it will work fine - HD Ready sets ensure that.

You are looking at the wrong numbers in the specs.

You need to look at the specs for PC input to the TV, all on mine are 60 Hz refresh rates.
