    Hi Amir - the KDSR60XBR1 has a D-Sub (15-pin) input for your PC, but not a DVI input. You can certainly use this set as a PC monitor if your video card has a D-Sub output.

    your tvs user manual should have a section on using it as PC monitor. Please be aware that it will most likely be a very "goofy" resolution. By goofy, I mean non standard resolution.
