So after sorting through some recent issues with my PC I realized its a good time to upgrade.
To give you an idea of what I'm working with, here is my budget, current build, and goals with an upgrade.
Budget: $300-400 (400 is really
pushing it though)
mobo- ASUS rampage formula
PSU- corsair 750 watt
CPU- intel core 2 duo e6850 at 3ghz
Video card- Geforce 9800 gtx+ at 512 mb
Memory- 4gb of g.skill ddr2 ram
OS- Windows 7 32bit
Monitor- 19 inch Dell sp2008wfp at 1680x1050
Goal: I really want to hit 1920x1080 resolution with max settings in games like Starcraft 2 and WoW and near max settings at the same resolution with games like ME 2 and Dragon Age.
Obviously, with my goal I'm looking at a monitor upgrade. However, when trying to get max settings on my current monitor's resolution in SC 2 the game warns me its not recommended and I need more video memory (1gb to be exact). So that would mean a new graphics card with the new monitor.
Keeping all this in mind and my budget I found the following products to interesting:

Now I am not sure if these are the best options, so I would like to hear from you all! Thanks in advance.
