Yes the 6800GT is worth the cash and it will last you for a while.

Whoa...whoa,,,,got some input here. I would spend a little more and just get this card, you'll be set for a while, only another $50:

That monitor is nice but dont buy it. It only has a analog connection and youll get a better picture with a DVI type lcd.

Agreed, go with the 3800 dual. Check out the comparison here:

I have to agree with the CPu go for AMD if your a gaming, its worth your money.

About the monitor i have to agree with vaderpro, most Video Cards are coming right now only have DVI conector obviously bring you a analog conector for people that don't have DVI LCD. So i said go for a good LCD VGI monitor. (thats how it should call it right?)

I've never heard of this brand, there must be a reason why it is so cheap. I think sticking with eVGA would be his best bet.
