Hello
I'm building a new computer. I wanted to look at my options for Graphic cards and LCD displays can anyone tell me what I should be looking at.

I plan to use the computer for but not limited to
- Graphic work 2D and 3D
- Programming
- Video editing
- Audio sequencing
- Gaming
- Word processing
- E-mail
- Internet
- Messaging
- Listening to music
- Watching videos and movies online and on DVD

What new Graphic cards are being released soon? and who is releasing them?
What LCD displays that are wide-screen are worth taking a look at? Dell? who else makes good LCD wide-screen displays?
