^ LOL
And I already got gamefly.

But Speakers would be nice awesome with a new monitor.
Seems nice.

I mean if I get a nice monitor then I could get a fairly ok speakers.
And I was also thinking about a new HDD. I ONLY have 50GB left on mine.

Now Im gonna start looking on the egg.

10 cartons of beer, make it an awesome Christmas, would do me.

Seriously, upgrade GPU, get a 22" widescreen monitor and speakers.

I suggest getting a new monitor, and speakers. Then wipe your hd and reinstall the OS so it will be faster and much cleaner hope you make the right decision

Well I have a problem.
I have a 7600GT.
And I know I don't think that will play good at high res's but This monitor is just "buy me buy me".

And someone plz Tell me what ACM Contrast Ratio is:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824009126

If I where to get one of these then I would have $150 Left

Any Ideas on a GPU that would work on that res no problem?
I'm looking right now and it don't look good.

i dont think you can get a really good gpu for $150...you could get new speakers though...i have the logitech z-2300's and theyre amazing! $130 shipped.

Forget the GPU, your 7600GT is good enough for a 20 inch monitor.
