Well, do not buy a monitor that size unless it is 1920x1080 or higher.

So yeah, 5850.

5970 is pretty overkill at that resolution. It is perfect for eyefinity and such though.

There is also 1680x1050. Be careful to avoid these.

Also, you would most likely do much better buying a good Asus/samsung monitor from the egg. And Hanns G is awesome if you are on a budget.

HP's are awful, I've had so many of those things die on me. Bad solder joints tend to kill them. You'll be right in the middle of a game and get a white screen of death and have to let the monitor cool down for ~15 minutes >_<

Agreed. Every box I get from them looks like an accordion. And do not even try ordering lcd's through ups, they will put it on the side and stack crap on top until the box collapses and the lcd gets smashed.

LOL I just posted this in another thread...

What is your monitor budget? I could have a look for you.
