So I've decided that for next year I'm going to build a mame arcade cabinet. Right now I'm just doing some research and I've already hit my first snag. I have an overall idea for what I want to do but the one thing that is throwing me off is the monitor. On one hand I'd like to go with a lcd pc monitor for better control and picture quality when using windows, less heat, and it will use less power. Also using a pc monitor will make connecting the pc that much easier. The cons are that the largest I could go is 21" and I'd really like to have a 25" screen. My next option would be a tube based tv. This would be relatively cheap and I could find one in the 25" range. It would also create a pretty realistic arcade picture. However, the tv would require some work with regards to having it be able to turn on when the arcade machine goes on and to have it automatically change to the correct input. The last option would be an actual arcade monitor. 25" screens aren't too hard to come by and the price would be less than a lcd but more than a tv. The only concern I have is how to connect it to the pc and how bad/good it would look when running windows. Anyone have some first/second hand experience? I know that there are a ton of websites out there for this but it's easier to narrow your options down and then search.
