    xbox 360 lcd tv vs monitor??

    my son has his xbox setup in the living room on our 40" samsung lcd which is lovely. Unfortunatly there's constant rows about watching tv vs xbox and all that, i'm sure loads have been there. So i want to get either a lcd tv or monitor to put in the kitchen. Ideally 22" would be nice. However, which is best? Its a hdmi xbox so i'm thinking an lcd tv? however monitors are much cheaper. I'm not REALLY bothered about high def as long as the picture isn't dark. We play cod5 mostly and a lot of the maps are dark, especially on lcd tv's. Can someone advise me? Obviously money is a big issue. Cheers.

    Just get a monitor then buy VGA cable. You can change brightness of game.

    Also why is the xbox in the kitchen?

    its not in the kitchen its in the living room. I want to put it in the kitchen though. How would the quality on a monitor be?

    It would be the same.

    yeah, if you don't need to watch TV, get a monitor. But remember that you will either need to get a monitor with speakers (which tend to be very poor), or you will also need amp and speakers for the xbox.
