Question Video Card for new rig

Hey guys first question what does your monitor need to be to run 1920x1200, so i cna buy that size monitor. Main question im not sure what video card to buy for my build between the evga 470 fermi or the radeon hd 5850 they're both the same price so not sure what to go with. Computer Specs: 4gigs ram phenom 2 3.4ghz quad core, and a 750w modular.THX

You have to check the resolution, not size. Even huge monitirs can be low resolution.

And go with the biostar 5850 for $305-310 at newegg, and flash to 5870 BIOS. You will end up with a card performing very slightly behind a true 5870, but $100 less. Oh and it would beat nVIDIA's space heater any day, except in a couple synthetic benches.
