I've got an LG "full HD" TV. It takes standard VGA, so no surprises
there and full HD means it's 1980x1080 at 60Hz. I use it with my laptop
to give me ample screen space for coding and it's perfect. I'm using
an nVidia Geforce 8400M GS that came with my 1 year old Dell Vostro.
Nothing special there.

I think on a 32" TV, I wouldn't like to work at much less than
1980x1080. I picked up my 32" on iBOOD for ~ EUR500 and I think
they're still selling in Currys for ~ EUR 700 reduced 3 months later.
