Which is a better upgrade? Need Help Ordering Tonight

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just ordered a GTX 260 from Newegg last night,

What would be a better upgrade for better gaming. A new 22 inch monitor, or a new cpu, maybe a 8400

Any suggestions?

If you get a new CPU, you'd probably want a better CPU cooler, so I would say monitor as well.

The one I posted a link to has a 2ms response time and a much higher resolution for only about $30 more.

I see. Well I still think it's worth another $30 if you've got it, otherwise the other one is a pretty decent choice.
