Any resolution w/ that card. Should be no limit, except crysis might flutter to 20 fps with ultra high and AA at the highest res (for 30" monitors )

I suggest 24" with the GTX 200 cards

Much better than 22" resolution which is equivalent of a 20" but stretched 2"

24" is 1920x1200

Yeah a decent 24" is my next purchase. Monitor prices coming down so much there's no reason not to.

Uh... I don't agree. I doubt that you would see even that high FPS with ULTRA HIGH and AA at the highest with 30" monitor resolutions. Last time I've checked, even SLI GTX280s have a hard time driving 30" monitor resolution with UH and max AA.

Even with 1920x1200 resolution of 24", you won't be able to drive Crysis using a GTX260 216core, at any playable frame rate, unless on medium.

My BFG Maxcore GTX260 and Samsung 24" is a good match for me. I play most games at full res with high AA AF settings. I don't play Crysis (even though I have it), but when I benched, I was able to get decent FPS at HIGH settings with 1650x1050 res (typical 22" monitor resolutions).
