If you 22" monitor has a native resolution of 1680x1050 (as most do), then a 4870 or GTX 260 Core 216 would both be great. Both perform about the same, in the end it can be a matter of preference or which games you play. If your MB support XFire or SLI, then maybe go toward the respective manufacturer so dual-card can be a future upgrade path.

What CPU do you have? We don't want a bottleneck.

I would suggest looking into something like a 4850X2, I've heard good thing about this card.

Also, if you want to get the best of the best, you could jsut wait till later this month till the GTX 295's come out.
