Unless if you have an 8800GTS 640, HD2900XT, or 8800GTX then 24 anything larger than 22 inches is just pushing it on performance...

if you get a 24" monitor you better get a good sli or crossfire set up for it...or you will be sorry when a game comes out and you can't run it .

keep in mind a 24 inch monitors native resolution usually is that 1900 something range which means you will take a big hit in performance. With games like Crysis, even that can bring a 8800 gtx to its knees. Whats the use of getting a large monitor if you dont watch a lot of movies on it and can't run games at max settings without lag?

I like to have a big workspace. Photoshop and video editing softwares running at the same time without the need to minimize makes the job easier. Playing a game and having room left over for windows is also a nice feature.
