    Ideal TV / Monitor Size

    Hello!!
    I think this is the right place where to ask this...
    Long story short, a good friend of mine is selling everything, some TV's included.. I have an old 32 inches Sony (+10 years)
    I have the opportunity to buy one to this guy, he has different sizes, in my Sim rig, the TV is between 75cm and 1.25 mts from my eyes (it has flexible support)
    Any recommendations for TV size?
    Thanks!!
    P.S. If here I should not post this question, please let me know where..

    If are 1080 TVs, pixels could be visible in big screens at short distance. If are 4k it will be very demanding from your GPU.

    But take in account the input lag. For gaming it's more important than the size.

    I'm going for 1080, I just have a notebook (with a RTX 2080, but it's not the same).

    But, "Ceteris Paribus"... all the same just variable the size... any range of ideal size for that distance from my eyes?

    For the specs that he has told me, all 4 TV seems similar... both are same brand, same model but different size...

    Thanks!!!!

    you have a Notebook. Visit your friend and try.
    bigger is better.

    For FOV i would look at Chris Heyes last video. He postet also som links to FOV calculators.

    This is like turbo exhausts, bigger is better...

    But maybe 65 inches at 90 cms from the TV could be too much... hahaha

    I will watch the video and read those links

    Thanks!!!!

    I use a 58inch 4k capable screen at 90cm and I really like the large vertical fov this facilitates, I really get a good feeling I am sitting in the car.
    I too think bigger is better, but if your new screen is large and running at 1080p you my find the larger pixels unpleasant with a larger fov.
    I find the 1080p setting on my Xbox ( frame rate bias) too chunky with my large screen but it is ok for me at 1400p (graphics bias) or higher.

    If the pixelsize is ok, then its no problem.
    Think of people who drive 40" tripples.
    You can drive a great FOV, for some views you'll have to turn your head a bit. Like in a real car.
