Default GF 8800GTS 512MB, highest resolution and LCD size?

I am looking into a new monitor right now and I have seen a few 24" on sale. What is the biggest size I should get as far as resolution goes for a single 8800 GTS 512, AMD X2 64 6400, 2GB RAM?

One of the 24" I am looking at says it supports up to 1920 x 1200 resolution.

Is there any adverse affect using lower resolution on a larger monitor compared to on a smaller 22" or 19" scree?

I'm not totally sure, but I think if you use a 24" monitor but with a lower resolution, it should still be fine. Might not be as clear, but it should be playable.

Newegg.com - Acer X193Wb Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 2000:1 ACM - LCD Monitors

This is a nice monitor that's on sale for 100 bucks today, and your card should do well on the resolution.

Thanks guys.

Here is one I am looking at

Newegg.com - SCEPTRE X24WG-1080P Black 24" 2ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 4000:1 Built in Speakers - LCD Monitors


That 19" for $100 is very tempting, I like the idea of a big screen though I just want to make sure it works well with one video card. Later I could get another one and SLI them but I don't want to worry about that for now.

thats a bangin deal! there is no way you should get a 19" vs a 24" if you can afford it, the difference is amazing.
and yes your card will work just fine with that monitor.

at the prices 8800gts are new you would be better off getting a newer card later my new 8800gts i bought last month costed me 199.99. if i saved a lilte bit more i could have gotte na gtx260 core216 if i had sold my current 8800gts but im still happy.

Yep, I have one 8800 GTS 512 now. I think I am going to go for that monitor, I really like the idea of a big screen, I can't wait to finish World In Conflict on that beast.
