Is this build proposed or built? If proposed then I would get a 4870 or 4850 instead of the 260. Have you overclocked the processor as it may be a bottleneck for the graphics card.

budget? 22" range from $100-700 - ViewSonic X Series VX2262wm Black 22" 5ms, 2ms(GTG) Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DC 20000:1(1000:1) Built in Speakers - LCD Monitors Is good or any samsung or chimei and you will be happy once you get down to a list of 3 possibles start looking for reviews to pick the final one:P
