Upgrade to the 4400+ Toledo...there isn't THAT big of a difference betwenn 7800GT and 7800GTX, and if it were me, I would just buy a 6800 GT then buy a bad arse video card next year when the DX10 cards hit.

i have a very similar issue!

I also need a monitor too:\

Hmm...what graphics card will you get if you don't get the 6800GT and get the 4400 Toledo? You could always do that and pick up a 6800NU which is still a very capable card.

now I have another problem, I have to choose between a 4400+ Toledo and a 19" LCD. (if I went with the 4400+ I'd get a 17" LCD)

it depends with you. i think 17" is fine with me. i mean my 17" CRT 16" viewable is fine with me. getting a 17" LCD moniotor sometime in OCt. i want to see what the difference is. 4400+ >19" LCD

4400+ > 7800GTX
