Slightly more decadent Upgrade Advice

I've got some cash to spend on a PC upgrade. Do I spend it on buying a new 19'' second monitor (as my current second monitor is a measly a-bit-less-than-17'')? Or do I upgrade my dual-core CPU to a quad-core?

I need to buy neither but I still want at least one. Decadence FTW.

Will you get that much more speed with the processor upgrade? If yes, I would saygo with it as a slightly larger monitor will only give you a small amount of viewing room upgrade. The processor would benefit all the programs you run.

cheese on toast:
Erm... what could be more fun than playing SupCom with two 19'' monitors... come to think of it... what could be more fun than playing SupCom. I guess I just answered my own question

Final:
Aesthetics are important too...
Two identical modern monitors look much better than two monitors that look like they were created in seperate millenia (and they probably were).
