Im yet to buy the television so i dont know the resolution.i dont really
need it for gaming as i dont really that often anyway.

I would definately like to get some HD viewing but i dont think i would be
able to stream a HD signal to the TV (see earlier post :) )

That fact that it is silent is brilliant!
