Ya, that's definitely a good monitor..

Runs at freaking 1080P, 1920x1080, so it looks awesome (higher Resolutions look better but are more demanding of the GPU.. but 1920x1080 won't require too much of a GPU [an HD 4850 would suffice])

I would buy that for myself if I didn't already have a monitor. That seems like a great deal.

Would a 9800GT do the trick?

Well I was just asking because the 9800GT is like 6 ranks below the 4850 in the gfx card ranking thread.

Sli would do it. I played with the BlackBird 002 from hP, and it had 2 9800GT's. CoD4 was sick, but sometimes hicuupped. Btw, 1900x1200 res.
