I have been thinking of using my TV for a Secondary to help with Streaming but not sure if it is something that is recommended or if I should just hold off until I get an actual Monitor. Anyone have any experience in this or at least some feedback? Any feedback is appreciated.

I don't suppose it would actually hurt. Most TV's will will accept a 1080p hdmi feed, which is likely the same resolution or less than you would have on a second monitor. So the load impact on your pc will be the same whether you add a second monitor or a TV.

Thank you. I think I am going to get that set up and running. Greatly appreciate the information.

There is no downside to it. Usually TVs have a lower refresh rate, but even newer ones don't have that issue as much.

Yeah but I just intend to use the TV for keeping track of the Stream and Chat mainly. Then use my Monitor for the game for Full Screen. So it's a good thing I decided that route then lol

plenty of people use their tv as a secondary. there's no rule to say how you should or shouldn't use a TV. some use a tv simply as a background graphic or for some stage branding. Go for it :)
