I'm currently running on a 21.5" (about 6-7 years old) 1920x1080 monitor with an i5 2500k and GTX 460 card for gaming. I was considering either upgrading to a 23-24" monitor ( or a GTX 670 ( - although it's a little pricy right now compared to the monitor). Suggestions as to which I will benefit most from right now? Thanks!

770 > 760 > 670
your monitor still works so no reason to upgrade it, the gpu will help more than the monitor.

^Right, if the monitor is working, then any performance increase will come from a new graphics card. By today's standards, a GTX460 is low-midrange, depending on what model it is (performs between a GTX650 or HD7750 and a HD7770).

If you need a better gaming experience, you should get a GTX 760 (~$250). Or, if you don't play games that often, a new monitor should be a good investment.
