    Hey guys, one more quick question...

    How will the video card be effected by me having a BIG monitor??

    I already ordered and received this monitor...
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16824254005
    its a 19" widescreen with 1440x900 resolution. Should everything still run smoothly..

    I was thinking of ordering the 7600gt over the other one. What do you guys think of the video card running at that high resolution?

    You shouldn't have any problems, your card should be able to handle high resolutions with ease.

    Wicked sick build bro,get 2 gigs of Ram,2x1gb sticks,it'll be good for the near future seeing as how programs are starting to need more and more ram,especially with all the 64 bit computing that iwll be happening soon :).If only my build was that good lol,and it cost me $800 cdn >.<

    And its pretty much been reached, its not hard to upgrade to 2GB of ram down the line anyway.

    It will run Windows fine, plenty fine at those resolutions. My main concern would be gaming, on higher level 3D games, you may want to scale back a bit. You may also find a little problem should you use generic VESA drivers in linux. (i assume you won't)

    Ya for doing basic stuff you video card will hand it. It is just when you are putting a pretty big load on it with games, then for more intense games your gonna need like a 7900gt anyway.

    Meh, if you want just to play them with some stuff off/small res, the 7600 will do.
