Nothing wrong with going bigger, but personally I think 20.1" is the perfect balance of price and size. You can find most 20.1" Widescreen LCD's for less than $400 and the size is perfect for pretty much anything.

I don't know, I guess I'll just look out for some deals online, and if I see anything, I'll pick it up. I do already have a 7600GT XXX, and once the DirectX 10 cards come out I plan on picking up one of those. I do some gaming, right now I'm into Battlefield 2. What resolutions do 20.1" monitors have? Also, is it that big of an upgrade from a regular 19" to 20.1? I remember when I went from 17" to 19" I was amazed.

you wont notice much difference i size between 19 and 20.1 inches, but i believe 20.1 inches have a higher resolution which mnay or may not be worth a heavier price tag depending on what youll be using it for.

I use two monitors for the sake of multitasking. I usually run around 10 Firefox windows, along with Photoshop, FileZilla, and other folders thatíll clog up one monitor, but not two. Itís usually because Iím lazy, or have stuff to do.


Here's an example of two 17" in action.

1680x1050. Don't worry, if my crappy 6800 NU could handle decent frames with a 20.1" Widescreen LCD, then your 7600 GT could certainly handle it.
