GTX460 1GB is not sufficient to run at 1920x1080 on the highest settings in most games.
If you want something that will do that you need to be looking at 560 Ti (OC) / 6950 / 570. ( $200-$220 / $230-250 / $290-315 )

The video card is recently purchased so i cant change that. What if i downgrade to a similar quality 21.5"? Will that do the trick?

If I were to purchase a second video card sli, would i have to purchase the same type? Would this allow me to run all the games i want?

Please note that, for the most part, I will be using my xbox360 for fps and the computer for mmorpg and strategy games(EVE online, WOW, and SC2)

Is the above monitor good for gaming? any other suggestions? does the monitor make a huge difference?

Let me know

Thanks

One more question... will I need to upgrade the psu or would 620w be fine?

My gut feeling is that since it's super clocked and has 2 pci-e connectors that it draws quite a bit of power and you would need a 750w psu.
620-650w would be enough if the cards only had one pci-e connector.

However you should be able to run at 1920x1080 with most settings on even with the GTX460.
Obviously you could use a 1680x1050 resolution monitor, but most monitors these days are 1920x1080.

So you think that running only one 460 ill be enough on a 23" or 21"? Doesn't matter?

Any brand/ type recommended for the type of games i will be using or is the above good for my needs?
