Default Samsung 40" Ultra-Slim TV For Race sim

Im looking for advice.

I had a Nvidia surround setup and liked it, But hated the fact that so many games didn't work properly with it.

So Now I wanna add a Large screen for JUST my Race sim set-up.

I want a 32" and Up but not sure if a TV would do the Job.

Let me know if this TV would work

I don't see why not. Many people use TV's for their racing sims. Is there something in particular that you're looking for in the TV?

What do you have in terms of GPUs for your surround? I would suggest going to a single monitor setup like a 30" Dell or HP that way you can really utilise the HP that you have (if you have GTX 680 in SLI or something similar).

I have and it is awesome but I couldn't stand gaming on such screen. You need to be at least 5 feet away from a 40" screen. We upgraded our TV and did 3D gaming on it and you need to be on a couch to game on a 50" TV.

Just a question. Of the games that did not work across multiple screens, how many of them were the racing sims that you are going to play on this dedicated rig?
I just want to make sure that other games are not putting you off something that would otherwise work.

I cannot provide greater detail, but occasionally on racedepartment you see people mention upgrading to triple displays for extra FOV in racing sims. So I do wonder what you are using that cannot be made to work, mostly because I have not seen some big list of sims that do/do not work.
