so this is my pc:

So I'm asking which would benefit me more.
A much better graphics card or a new monitor?

Normally a new graphics card would be a no brainier but its a little different here. I'm currently using a sanyo tv and the picture quality just... is not very good. in games its ok i guess but every else its not very good. Its a 32 inch tv and its native resolution is 1300x900 or something like that so in other words the picture quality is not very good. So im worried that on this tv I would not even be able to see the better graphics from a new graphics card. So tell me guys, which would be a better choice.

Thanks much.

    1300 sucks, especially a TV where you have to sit back 6 or 8 feet to make the picture ( game ) look good.

    you can get 24" 1080 monitor. things would look awesome in comparison. you will take a performance hit because of the current "graphics" card, but under your circumstances I would deal with it.

    later on you can cross fire with that cpu ( 6670 ) or just buy a better graphics card altogether. you can get good ones for $150 now.

    alright well thank you for the answer. I guess I will get the monitor. I was kind of leaning towards it anyways. I guess I will buy myself a graphics card for christmas lol but anyways thanks

  4. Oh, by the way, as an aside, Dell makes decent monitors and I saw this deal running:

    180 for a 24" 1080 and they give you a 100 dollar gift card with it, which you can sell or do whatever with. Hope this helps!
