    As far as games your processor I would venture. Obviously depending on the game.

    OK for now until you get it, your monitor in a way is "bottlenecking" your eye candy of the video card. Meaning max res is limiting, but yet 1280x1024 is still a decent pair up for that card. Once you get that new monitor, when you game at a higher res, your cpu won't bottleneck as much. But, it isn't much of a bottleneck either as it is right now. ;)
