Something you should think about. You don't have to just upgrade to a different monitor. You can ADD ANOTHER monitor. I've gotten so used to having two monitors now I just couldn't go back to a system with just one. Your video card should have two outputs on it. Just connect your new monitor to the primary port and move your old monitor to the secondary port. Use your secondary monitor for viewing web pages and such and you primary monitor for whatever your focusing on. Some games support multiple monitors now as well.
