Go big or go home

If you are setting up a killer gaming rig, with multiple graphics cards and a gig or more of video memory then you won't be getting your moneys worth unless you play at very high resolutions. If you stay with 1680x1050 you won't be much better off than with a single card. If you go big, like 2560 x 1600, then you will be using the graphics power to it's utmost. To be able to run those resolutions you will need a 30" monitor, like the Samsung SyncMaster 305T that Phoronix just reviewed. Sound interesting?
"If a 22" or 24" LCD monitor doesn't provide enough screen real estate for you or you just want to go all out and find the
best monitor without having a real budget, you'll more than likely end up looking at the 30" monitors that are available.
There aren't many but Apple has a 30" Cinema Display and Dell also have a very popular 30" monitor, but there are also some
from other manufacturers. In fact, today we are looking at the Samsung SyncMaster 305T, which is a 30" monitor with a native
resolution of 2560 x 1600 and has a price tag of over $1200 USD."
