Thanks all for the opinions, sorry I didnt get back sooner. It was a very late night lkast night and needless to say my head is killing me today.
I was actually hoping for bigger than 24" only because when I got my first 22" (Samsung 226BW) it was huge, after that one broke I got the Acer 22" I have now and they just dont seem that big anymore. BTW I actually like the acer better than the samsung. The samsung was too glossy, so when light would shine in on my days off I could barely see what I was doing. So thats another thing I have to think about but wouldnt stop me from buying a monitor.
So 24" with 1920x1200 otherwise to go bigger I have to have a higher resolution. I really dont feel like cluttering my system with SLI, but when the new cards come out I will probably buy a higher end one ($450-$600) so hopefully low framerates wont last forever. I mainly play wow (which Im sure my 8800gt can handle at that res) and COD4, which Im not a huge stickler, dont need all of AA/AF to enjoy that game. Hell right now Im playing it at 1024x768 on my 22" monitor with a radeon 9800pro while I wait for my 8800GT to get back from RMA lol.
