so, a 9600gt will run COD4 well on a 22" ?

I have an Acer 22", and it runs 1680x1050 very well:
Newegg.com - Acer AL2216Wbd Black 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor with HDCP support 300 cd/m2 700:1 - LCD Monitors

I like it, and it's cheaper now than what I paid for it (and what I paid for it I thought was cheap then!).

When you go to 24" the native resolution goes up, making it harder for the card to handle it. the 9600 should handle 1680x1050 just fine.

I got this high end monitor, Newegg.com - LG W2252TQ-TF Black 22" 2ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 10000:1 - LCD Monitors

Its quite nice for what you are trying to spend 3000:1 REAL CONTRAST RATIO, Dont be tricked by those 10000:1 dynamic, not sure what that really means, most of those monitors have like a 1000:1 contrast ratio anyways.

Contrast is over rated. Color reproduction is more important to me. Which is one reason i wont buy a TN panel. Cant wait until i sell off some of my parts to pick up a 30" samsung

$275
