Because I work late tonight and I rather pick one up when the infamous bundle comes out. Anyway my question is I want to upgrade my pc right now I think my monitor is my weakness. Its a hp cheapy from best buy 60hz 1920x1080. I'm fine with 1080p however I plan on getting another 780 so should I go for 120fps or is higher rez really that much of a differences . For my new monitor.?

I'm still on 1600x900, you're fine. If you are a constant upgrader it could be good to go multi monitor or 1440p though.

Well I plan on using the old monitor for off gaming stuff like guides and maps. I wanna have a dual monitor set up but I don't want to get same monitor. From what I heard its not a good one for gaming. My main question is what's a bigger upgrade fps/hz or resolution. And what's a good price point for a nice one I'm thinking $400 ish?

1920x1080 is the current enthusiast standard for now. If you want to upgrade, you should get 2560x1440 monitor. Be aware that 2560x1440 monitors are huge, they are 27" and above.
