    The only difference between a regular monitor and a gaming monitor is the response time. Gaming monitors are designed to have as little output lag as possible. With movies there is no need for that

  • no, its perfectly alright.

    the problem becomes how you get the moves and tv shows into the PC to begin with. Except for DVD or Blu-Ray, all are copy protected to prevent this

    Well...IF your gaming on that PC requires a gaming monitor

    then it is appropriate, regardless of what other uses you make of it.

    You should get the least-expensive monitor

    that will serve ALL of your needs sufficiently and in the foreseeable future (for the expected lifetime of the PC).

    Yes and Yes.  But if you play video games do you really care?  Or are you thinking about buying a monitor for someone else?
