I need help selecting what size. I am really worried about getting a 19" about being too big for games etc.

Will it give me headaches, i really want one, but there is this thing in the back of my head saying "what if its too big and i cant use it". Will it just be a waste of money.

What i want to know is does anyone else get headaches from there 19" and would they recommend it to me, a hardcore gamer. Or would a 17" suit me better.

19" shouldn't give you haedaches as long as you sit far enough away from the screen and have a high enough refresh rate.
Refresh rates can usually go higher the bigger the monitor anyway. If you have the money and you really want a 19" monitor, go with that. OR (as your a hardcore gamer) buy the 17" and start to save up for the 9700 or NV30 (If you haven't already got the 9700)

How far would u think i should sit away from it, i mean sitting too far away isnt possible because of the mouse and keyboard.

at the moment i sit about an arm legnth away from the monitor. Closer when im playing games.

What I meant is don't sit with your face touching the monitor. (Which is near enough what I do)
