More about graphics soooo confusing
  1. For 19" monitor then a single HD5850 or GTX470 is more than enough to maxed out everything...
  2. A HD 5770 will be fine for your resolution. The HD 5850 can be considered a slight overkill, but should you decide to upgrade to a higher resolution monitor, then you will be good to go.

    A 1000w PSU is way, way overkill. Since you are not overclocking and a single video card is more than enough for your monitor, a good quality 500w is more than enough. I recommend PSUs sold by Seasonic, XFX, Corsair, PC Power & Cooling, and Antec.

    Of course if you wanna brag that you have a 1000w PSU to your friends, then that's your business...
  3. Another vote for 5770,its a perfect choice for your resolution and can handle games fine.
