I alsoi just wanted to let Corp know that his "state of the art NEC" isnt that state of the art if it can only handle 1600*1200@60Hz
My Iiyama Vision Master Pro 450 ( which is getting old) can handle 1600*1200@85Hz just like Lou Natics KDS.
About benchmarks, as I have a good 19" montitor with a GF3 I play all my games at 1280*1024@100Hz no less, also 1600*1200@85Hz if I dont want to use any FSAA and lower the anisoptic filtering. As for Q3 benches, I bought that game when I had my Celeron 433 + TNT1
I think using games that are 6-12months old max.
