I currently have a crappy HP 17" CRT on an 8600GTS. Should I ask for a 22" LCD? or an HD4850?
I say both. Newegg has eggcelent deals on both.
My uncle lives in Houston so he's most likely to shop at: Directron, Microcenter, or Frys
Depends. Do you play lots of GPU intensive games? If so, vidcard first.
If you're more of a movie watcher/internet browser; i'd go monitor.
I was leaning towards the 4850 because I play games like COD:WAW, COD4, Crysis Warhead, NFS Undercover, Assassin's creed. But I don't think It'll look too good at 1280x960 on a 17" screen
Let them buy the monitor is more expensive and you buy the videocard it's cheaper.
Aren't they the same price? The 4850 is like $150 and so is the cheapest 22" LCD
I'd ask for the monitor. You can pick up the 4850 later, probably cheaper than a decent 22" monitor.
One thing, though. I would pick out a particular model of 22" monitor, otherwise you may get one you are unhappy with. It is someone else buying it, so its someone else's opinion, preference(and budget).
Im pretty sure he doesn't have a budget as he works for NASA, but I don't wanna cost him over $200. So its either this monitor http://www.directron.com/etev3wp001.html or this card
hmm.... I vote for video card. Then ask for the monitor for your bday
Ehh I put up a poll
