Best screen size for COD?

What do people think is the best screen size for cod?
I was debating this last night as i think a too big screen means you can miss things ... Whereas too small means you can miss things as they are too arent in focus and its harder too aim...

I think about 27 inch is about perfect ...

Bigger is better

I use a 37", 40-42" is the most common used by my friends.....

You see I think if its too big theres too much to focus on... Isn't that a valid theory?

I find it easier to spot things in my peripheral vision with a larger screen.

For me viewing angle is more important - I have to be dead centre to the TV.

I've got a 28 inch TV and I found it very easy to miss things. Maybe that's because my telly isn't HD or anything like that, so it's difficult to spot people far away. Or maybe I'm just crap at CoD

Penguinz how can you be playing your 360 on a non HD tele? It was the first thing I bought after the 360, in fact I spent 3 times as much on the tele as I did the 360

On my 27 inch I can keep a consistent 3.xx k/d ish... When i go over my mates to play on his 40inch I can barely keep a 2 k/d... So thats what i'm basing my theory on!
With me going to uni im just looking at screens and wondering what to buy!

Cool

I use a 32" lg HD tv for most things and it is absolutely spot on for FPS from my point of view.

I don't know, if I use the Xbox on the living room TV which is 40 inch HD, it takes me ages to get used to crap graphics again

I'd invest in a cheap HD tele EP, your simply not getting the best value from your 360 playing it in SD....

for the xbox and the pc i prefere to use my 42" lcd. 1080p the games do look nice but only if i use the wireless keyboard and mouse and sit on the sofa at a good distance. If im sitting at the desk its using a 24" benq 1080p monitor, so much better in terms of hz refresh the games are silky smooth.

I've got a HP 2159m PC monitor. VGA input. It's looking a bit small now so I'm tempted to get a 32" HD TV. I sit just over a foot away from the screen, So I don't want anything too big.
