Post Video card and Monitor questions.
Soo I am thinking about getting these.
Video card- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6814127476

Monitor- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6824001377

Was curious what you all thought. And If there is something better. My Budget is around $360 this will cost around $380. I can go up to $400. If anyone has any thoughts.

My pc is running a 700 watt power supply with 1 6pin maybe 2 6pins not sure I will look tomorrow and edit.

Cpu dual-core AMD 2.9gig 64bit athlon2
4gig dual channel 800mhz ram
and a decent asus mobo :)

My friend has a card like this said I should get it. Said it will probally be fine for what I want. Now my quest for a decent LCD monitor. So with that down I have around $240 to spend. :) But have no idea what to look for in a Monitor. I know that if its possible I would like to be able to use my xbox 360 on it also. So prefer one that supports 1080p with HDMI and DVI for the PC.

Best thing I can say about a monitor is try to go look at it in the store before you buy it; you want to know what you'll be looking at for the next few years.

True :) I think I will head to best buy this weekend see what they have to offer. I should also have my tax return by then. I am using some of it to buy this. :P And saving the rest for school. :P

MWuahahha So I bought a samsungg screen before it was supposed to be released. I went to my local bestbuy and was like hey whats this screens price. She replies not sure let me check. She logs into her thingy and it doesn't show up. So she was like not sure let me look somemore so she finds out that screen wasn't supposed to be on the shelf til april 3rd or 4th. Anyways So i bought this for $309. The manager said just sell it to him. :P I was like SWEET!!!
