I just bought an M5A99FX R20 board, intending on using my Phenom II 965

how much can my CPU do for me, relative to gaming with 1 or 2 cards

coming from a 4200+. If you added another card it would easily double your frame rates as a 260GTX isn't that powerful. (by todays standards at least, my laptop has a faster card) But in order to get that 100% scaling, you'll need to be playing at 1920x1080+

I spent a lot of $$$ on my Asus PA238QR which has awesome color, fullHD 1080p and every connector known

standard HDTV 1920x1080 is all I need, screen is 23" which is standard
