TV as a monitor question again..NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GS graphics

I'm considering an upgrade to this system.

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage...+quad&lp=4&type=product&cp=1&id=1212192194712

It's got these video related specs.

- NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GS graphics
With 512MB dedicated video memory and up to 2303MB total available
graphics memory as allocated by Windows Vista. Features DirectX 10
support and TV-out, DVI and HDMI connections. High-definition audio.

- High-definition TV tuner (NTSC and ATSC)
With PVR (personal video recorder) and FM tuner. Allows S-video and
composite video inputs.

- HP Media Center remote with IR receiver
Allows you to control your media from a distance.


I'd like a monitor I can both use as a TV and Desktop Monitor. I'm a
developer so I need a lot of screen Real Estate as I can have many Aps
open at once but at the same time I also need something that's crisp
and easy on the eyes when reading a lot of code and documents.

Would a 30 inch TV/Monitor be functional?ridiculous? It's for home
use. What specs should I be concerned with? Eventually I'd like to use
the mix to watch HDTV over the internet like http://Hulu.com and
receive local channels over new an HDTV Antenna or the PC if it
supports this.

Also, I'm on BellSouth Extreme DSL 6.0 and my router is a Linksys
wireless N Gigabit router. What's the best way to send TV signal some
40 feet (through several walls) to my entertainment room where I have
a 42inch Toshiba Flat LCD HDTV? Coax?

Thanks for any help or information.
