Default Which HDTV/screen connected to a PC?

Im looking for a new (and bigger) screen and want to primarly use it with my PC preferable for both work (office, internet, Photoshop) and entertainment (games, HD content). Max. distance from the screen would be around 3-4ft for work, and 5-6ft for games.

Here are the some of my choices with my current favorite:

1. Dell 2707 / 27", 400cd/m, 1000:1, 6ms

2. Sharp LC37XD1E / 37", 450cd/m, 1200:1, 6ms

3. LG 42LF66 / 42" , 450cd/m, 5000:1 (dynamic), 8ms

The Dell is the only "true" PC monitor and has the largest native resolution (1920x1200) and due to its size the lowest pixel-pitch. The HDTVs are both 1080p and all three cost around the same where I live.

Since its probably impossible to find the necessary close-distance PQ that I do need for work AND a bigger screen for entertainment all in one screen Im consindering an alternative and keep my old 17" LCD for work-duty and use a HDTV for entertaiment.

Thanks in advance and Im looking forward to your opinions and/or possible alternatives.
