Why would you need a new GFX card? That will not change the resolution of the LCD.

Lol I know. either I should get a new gpu for future gaming or a new bigger 1080p monitor. as of right now, my GPU is working great for current games. and my monitor is ok too. but it would be nice to have a better graphics card for future games, but it would also be nice to have a bigger monitor with 1080p instead of 1440x900. im just stumped on what to get. if anybody has any suggestions as far as what to get and would be the best product for the money i have to spend that would be awsome.
