My System Specs

I kinda skimmed this thread but not sure as to what the big discussion is here. Go to Best Buy, look for a TV $300 or less that is 1080p - which really, 720p would be fine for both TV and web browsing (especially if you're not using an HD cable/satellite receiver, and even then a lot of it is only 720p), buy it and then plug your computer in using HDMI. Done. I would also go with minimum 32" with how far away you're sitting.

You can also easily find a 32" for $300 these days. Go to the FS/BB website and sort TV's by price and check them out. If you want me to actually link something that you can buy, then sure here you go;

Insignia 32" 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV (NS-32E440A13) : 30" - 39" LED TVs - Best Buy Canada

or $20 more for 39"

Insignia 39" 1080p 60Hz LCD HDTV (NS-39L240A13) : 30" - 39" LCD TVs - Best Buy Canada

And I guess if you reaaaaally want to cheap out and go with a 24" then this one:

Insignia 24" 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV (NS-24E340A13) : 21" - 29" LED TVs - Best Buy Canada

Those are all Insignia since they're the cheapest of all brands. I have not personally owned one or viewed one other than at BB/FS so I can't comment on quality but enab says they're alright so they must be half decent. I'd prefer either a Samsung/Sony/LG

You may even want to wait and see if there will be any Black Friday sales on TV's.
