If you already have a 17" flat screen, then I'd say get the 7900GT. If you still have a CRT or something, then get the monitor.

ya, i'm using a 17 inch crt right now, they're both tempting choices, and so far, i've heard monitor from everyone.. and i've had a couple (like 2) who said to get the 7900 gt... my graphic hungry friends :P ... but everyone else knows i need a good monitor to show the true eyecandy of this 7900gt

i am saying a second 7900gt would be a superfluous addition to your pc whereas a new monitor is something that is more readily useful. SLI IS A WASTE OF MONEY (caps lock acknowledged :P)!!!!!!! if you have the money for sli then in my opinion it should still be last on your list of upgrades

edit: superfluous: excess of an item, object or thing that does not provide much benefit. if that definition is inaccurate then blame me because i typed it

ah gotcha, i thought you wre talking about buying anything in general for me was superfluous.. not just the 7900gt, okay, sounds good to me.. i've heard monitor a million times now, and im pretty much convinced.. and yes.. it would be a smarter choice.. i wouldnt say sli is a waste of money (well sort of), its just.. the only thing my 7900gt can't handle at full is oblivion.. so i guess it isnt as bad as i chalk it out to be.. i just demand to look better than xbox 360....
