If that is a 60hz monitor, and you don't plan on going to 1440p or 120hz anytime soon, you really don't need a 780.

My suggestion? Spend 400$ on a 770 and then toss out that pos monitor (lol sorry) and get a cheap 1080p monitor.

So I take it you might not exactly understand what we mean when we say 60hz, 120 hz, or 144hz. Well to explain it briefly, the hz is how fast your monitor can refresh the screen, so even if your gpu has the capacity to run a game at 70 frames per second if your monitor is a 60 hz monitor it can only show it at 60 fps. To check your monitor refresh rate you can go to control panel, adjust screen resolution, advanced settings, click on the monitor tab and then under screen refresh rate there is a drop down menu that you can use to change it, and see how high you monitor supports up to.

I wouldn't spend that much on a 780 with a 1680x1050 monitor its like sticking a gtx titan in a commodore 64

Swap it out for atleast 1080p or better still a 2560x1440 monitor. Only then are you going to see the benefits, higher resolutions will greatly improve picture quality,
