Default biggest monitor I can run with a 8800GTS ?

The time has come for me to upgrade my old 19'' HP dinosaur. I am currently running an 8800GTS 512mb GR2 graphics card. Will I be able to do a 24'' monitor without much problem on most games ??

I am able to SLI another 8800GTS in the future as well, so as long as its "aceptable" right now.... since I only play WOW (minimal graphics requirements) I'm sure it will be fine...

whata u guys think ?

Whats a good 24'' monitor for around $250 ??

Well, you could yes, as most people can do it with a 9800GT (8800GTS is better remember). Crysis, World in Conflict etc you very likely wont be able to but if a game lags and its not CPU bound you can just run it at 1680x1050 and youll be hard pressed to see the difference.

But for WoW youre set to fly.

A good 24" is a Benq G2400WD (got mine for $220USD). Also any and all Samsung's that have a 1920x1200 resolution (stay away from the 1080 ones).

should not be too hard.

i used to have a 9800GTX and at 1680x1050 it would easily cream all of my games. gave me a good 60FPS (vsync enabled ) and never budged.

You must not have updated your sig in awhile then. What do you have now?
