eh.. 1080p on 22 inches seems like an over kill.. That's the res for 52" LCD's..

Ahh a G92 one... ya you are good..

@ that resolution aliasing won't me an issue, and you won't have any use of AA (I'm referring to the 1080p Res monitor)

Newegg.com - ASUS VH222H Black 21.5" 5ms HDMI Widescreen 16:9 Full HD 1080P LCD Monitor Built in Speakers 300 cd/m2 1000:1 (ASCR20000:1) w/ SPDIF out - LCD Monitors

and i'm going to buy a dvi to hdmi converter so i can use my hdmi cable on the monitor end and the dvi part in my graphics card. will my graphics card be able to handle the full res? (i game alot btw)

You can OC a little, and it will be pretty good.
1080p~1600x1200.

It's mostly the GPU for res, and yes, it's good. You can set it to 1680x1050 res, too, so it's a nice choice.Once you have the money, try selling your card, and buying 2 ATi cards to Crossfire, you have a crossfire board. But your card is good for now.

Crossfiring increases speeds by 60-70% not really worth doing from a starting point build better for second hand small upgrtade to tide you over until your next big graphics purchase.
