I'm torn between getting a 22" monitor and run new system faster vs 24" monitor higher resolution less FPS on gaming rig. This is the monitor I have been thinking of :SAMSUNG 226BW Black 22" 2 ms (GTG) DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 700:1(DC 3000:1) - Retail

Any thoughts?

in your case i will go for the 22"
with the 8800gts the 22" is the best option :D 

you might want to change this
since you have a crossfire mobo ill go
with a 4850 instead of the 8800gts

in newegg the 4850 is $159
is even a bit faster than the 9800gtx :)

I agree with topo. 22inch will be fine for your setup.
