Okay I took some time out of my day and went to best buy and looked at the 19in, 20in and 22in lcd monitors... No tough choice anymore I am getting the 22in. Now I have to get a good 22in for a great price. Now I am not shorting myself and grabbing the 640mb 8800gts.

Most people recommend the samsung or hanns-g. I am actually trying to decide between these 3 monitors:

Acer AL2216Wbd Black 22" 5ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor with HDCP support 300 cd/m2 700:1 - Retail

SAMSUNG 206BW Black 20" 2 ms (GTG) DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 800:1 (DCR 3000:1) - Retail

SAMSUNG 216BW Black-Silver 21.6" 5ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DC 3000:1(1000:1) - Retail

Tough choice

I may end up biting the bullet and grabbing a 19in to save some cash.
or sometimes u buy a regular evga 8800gts and they give u a superclocked gts

buy the cheapest one, and use ATITool and OC it urself, but i think if u wanna keep the overclock, u have to keep AtiTool running as a process in ur system tray???

i originally bought the regular 8800gts 640mb which is 500/1600, but once i started checking my gpu speeds via ntune, it read as 576/1700, which is the superclocked version...i have no idea what your talking about
