Hardware usually is IDENTICAL over the whole world, no matter where you buy it...
(you only gotta watch out for power supply stuff, but my monitor supports both 240V for Europe and 115V for US).

Warranty may be the only problem if a problem arises.

If you plan on using your TV for anything, the TV out might not work. I believe France is PAL. We are NTSC in Canada (even in Quebec ;)).

My whole computer system is from Hong Kong, and I am now in the US. no problem at all. the only thing you have to watch out for is power. Monitor most of the time has automatic voltage regulator. but you should double check on that.

And yeah, check the TV system. PAL or NTSC can make all the difference.
