I have no experience with your particular situation, however I would say 
that if you intend to use it as a PC monitor I would definitely go for 
Full HD. 720 vertical pixels would be pretty cramped for a PC monitor. 
That's less than a 1024x768 monitor which is pretty much the low end 
these days, and I think you'd find it very uncomfortable to work with 
(depending on what kind of programs you would want to run of course).

Kind regards,
Pepijn Schmitz
