Currently, the most common LCD size being purchased for gaming would have to be the 19”, as it offers plenty of viewable area at an affordable price. Furthermore, most standard 19” LCD’s use a native resolution of 1280x1024 and retail for under $200 US. When limited to a resolution of 1280x1024, graphics cards such as the GeForce 8800 GTX are unnecessary at the moment and would be complete overkill. Currently, a Radeon X1950 Pro or GeForce 7900GT are better options for those using 19” LCD monitors. However, you can save even more money by purchasing a Radeon X1650XT or GeForce 7600GT. While the X1950 Pro will set you back just $200, the X1650XT is even cheaper at $150 US or less.
