2 9600gt's perform the best out of those, but its unnecessary unless you have a high resolution monitor

if you don't have a 1920x1200 Resolution monitor or higher get 1 8800gt

is that 22'' a Widescreen Monitor or a Full-Screen Monitor

If its Widescreen (rectangular Monitor), its 1680x1050, you don't need it, unless theres a rare chance its one of those that run at 1920x1200 in which case you would need it

Full-Screen: definite yes

ok one more question would one 9600 gt be good enough to play games like nwn2 or oblivion on high settings?

my main concern is nwn2 wich seems to be a comp hog game. was trying to decide between 1 8800 gt 512 or 9600 gt 1 gig

If your going to spend that much on a 1 gb 9600gt I would suggest getting the MSI 8800 GTS
Newegg.com - MSI NX8800GTS 512M OC GeForce 8800GTS (G92) 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards
