how big of a monitor do you want? That is the first question. For around $200 you can get some good quality 19" widescreens which offer excellent gaming pleasure and a good resolution for gaming.

These monitors are beautiful i think. Samsung monitors are hard to beat - SAMSUNG 906BW Black-Silver 19" 2 ms (GTG) Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 2000:1 DC - LCD Monitors
after MIR it's 199.99

EVGA 750i FTW Mobo

imo there's no point in getting a 4850 for a 19" monitor, and no point in getting a 19" monitor for a 4850

Either downgrade the gfx card to save some cash or spend a bit more for a nice 22" screen.

For budget 22" screens these are good choices: - Acer AL2223Wd Black-Silver 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor with HDCP Support 300 cd/m2 800:1 Built in Speakers - LCD Monitors - Hanns·G Hi-221DPB Black 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 Built in Speakers - LCD Monitors - BenQ G2200w Black 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DC 2500:1(1000:1) - LCD Monitors
