Ya. I feel the same way. 1920x1200 seems groovy but then ... 6 months down the road and you end up lowering AA or AF or something else in some new game that comes out to try to keep the framerates above 50.

24" LCD's and up are definately a dual card/dual GPU kind of proposition over the long haul. It's not ALWAYS the case. But that res is a bitch to keep up there.

22" @ 1680x1050 is a decent alternative as the range of possible cards you can use with it for gaming is broader and easier to maintain.
