You should get a 22"@ 1680x1050 monitor, because you'll get a better FPS, and the quality of the picture is still great.

The Sapphire cooler is awesome.

As for a GPU cooler, I suggest just using the stock and turning the fan up if you don't mind a lot of noise.

Haha, no rig can max out Crysis unless it has 3 GTX 280 SLI.. (well with a good FPS)

I'd say live with some on Medium, or play at all High at a Medium Res..

That can run Crysis? I had a similar rig with a 9600XT back in the day and couldn't even run Crapsis

I was thinking of getting Intel Quad core Q6600
instead of E8500

Its only 2 bucks extra should I just get that instead?

And will my Aprevia X-cruiser have enough room because its a mid tower?

I know I have alot of questions..
