My System Specs

My previous monitor was a 1920x1200 Samsung 245BW, I decided to give up vertical resolution to get 120Hz+LightBoost. If you want to stick to Samsung, they come in both 23" and 27" variants, but are limited to 1920x1080.
Ya, I don't really want to 'upsize' the pixels and move to a 1920x1080 27" display. If I move to a larger monitor it will be for higher resolution. But, I've had a few people tell me that 120hz is the be-all and end-all of gaming displays. Oh, what to do, what to do...

BTW, your name reminds me of Patrick Jane....if your name is based off what I think it is, you'll know who I mean. If not, then oh well.
Edit: NM, I googled your name, and found your, my theory was wrong.
