im thinkin about gettin an LCD monitor but im curious is it better to have a higher resolution like 1600x1200 or a lower one like 1280x1024 and just turn on AA as high as it will go. i have a 7800gt so i know ill be able to take either one but the question in part is should i look for an LCD with higher resolutions or dont even worry about it. other thoughts how low of a response time should i look for and what kind of ratio do u reccomend? also is there a big difference between DVI and VGA outputs? all ideas are welcome thanks in advance

Look for an LCD with fast response time... between 2ms-12ms should be ideal the LOWER the better.

As for the resolution, I'd go with the highest you can get.. 1600X1200 will look sweet.
Take a look at the link below for a more indepth guide:
I'd recommend this:
If you are looking for the highest contrast ration, lowest response, low dot pitch, and 1280X1024 reso.

If picture quality is your forte:
