    Didn't think about leaving the monitor upgrade for later.

    To be honest, I don't know anything about monitors, I "thought" I read somewhere that DGM were ok though but I guess they're not.

    Well if the OP won't upgrade in a long time then a quad core would be good I guess.

    Personally, I like CRT monitors and I'd suggest you hold on to yours until it plain stops working - in which case you could even go for a HD4670 for ~ £50 and get an adequate gaming experience on your existing monitor. You could then review the options for both a new monitor and a GPU upgrade to go with it in a year or two.

    If you get a new monitor now, then I'd definitely second CATs suggestion of a 512MB 5750 - they're very good value @ £85
