man i'd way sooner get quick new HDDs or a GPU than a new monitor! you really dont get much going from 22" to 24" and its a pretty decent price difference (i've got a 22" Full HD BenQ... it'll do the same res as a 24" and you'll hardly notice the change in day to day use) but if you spend that price differential on drives or GPUs and you'll get a much better performance increase

I think its totally worth it to get a 24" first. Your typical 22" is 1680x1050. The extra real estate is very handy if your someone that runs multiple apps. Prices are getting lower than before for a 24" so its a good time to grab. The monitor and gpu go hand in hand so the bigger the monitor the more gpu power you'll need. The more gpu power you have the bigger the resolution/ monitor you'll need to utilize it. Its a double edge sword.

Yeah upgrade time it is

Just put my old parts up for sale not even 20 minutes ago on a local site so we will see how that go's.

Thinking about either a 22" Acer X223WBD or a 22" Asus VW222U since they are both at the $200 mark.

I noticed a big diff between my 22" and 23" ...cramming 2048x1152 into 23" makes for one purdy picture
