What's the cheapest vid card that is capable of maintaining a steady 120fps at 1024X768 in Quake 3 tweaked for maximum visibility (vertex lightning, r_picmip 5 etc.).
What's the cheapest (but still ok quality) 19" monitor that is capable of 120hz refresh rate at 1024x768? What's the cheapest flat tube monitor capable of the same?

I know I won't get those frame rates with this CPU regardless of the gfx card, but I thought later, if I get a Duron Morgan and overclock it all I can.

well if you had like a 1.2-1.4 GHZ computer even a geforce2 Ti or a Radeon7500 could easily do that for around 70-80$ and a geforce3 can do it with the Athlon too probably QuakeIII isnt exactly the newest game its not tht hard on video cards...
