yes, im planning on getting a 16xx x 1xxx widescreen monitor
(can't remember what the resolution numbers are)
On my new rig, before the new ATI cards came out, I was planning on getting a 8800GTS for it... I would be playing on that resolution, and I knew an 8800GTS would be more than enough for it. It sure is a stepup from what I'm running right now.
I would spend the money on the monitor.
