I think i would like a bigger monitor. any ideas? What about the MOBO? i thought about the extreme4 but i didn't really see anything that made it worth 70 bucks more. What about the graphics card? I just can't make up my mind on it and there are so many. Which is better the 560ti or the 6950? which brand is better EVGA? MSI? etc. For the most part I'm happy with everything except the monitor and graphics card.

Thank you for any help
