Default PC gaming on desk + monitor vs. home theater

Came across this post: http://www.rage3d.com/board/showpost...28&postcount=2

Got me thinking because I was pondering about hooking up my main gaming PC permanently to the home theater. But then it seems that a mouse and keyboard on a desk is more comfortable than having to somehow place them on your lap while on the home theater. Plus, I kinda agree with having the screen closer to you is kinda better for PC gaming. What do you guys think?

Depends on the game. I have my PC desk directly beside my HomeTheater and only time I hook up is if it's a game I'm going to play with a controller oooor if I really want 3D as I have a 60" 3D plasma.

Not that higher Hz TV displays can't make great PC displays though.
