Default Newegg DIY KIT

For my grandmother, I'm building it for her, the I3 kit with a 20" monitor and windows 7 home premium 64bit.

She's moving up from an old system I built 7 years ago.

I'll be setting it up this week for her, but I'm wondering about the resolution. I bought a geforce210.

When building a PC for my parents, I looked for the largest screen with the lowest resolution. If your grandmother has issues seeing, you may want to do the same.

I found a monitor at TigerDirect for my folks that was 23" and it's max res was something like 1366x768. They have really liked it so far.

I believe it is this monitor: Link
