Your current computer is massive, massive overkill for a tiny little display. Do yourself a favour and get a bigger monitor, you won't regret it. With an 8800GTX, you'll need to be hitting 24" resolution (1920x1200) before you have to worry about any games not hitting max everything and still having more than playable frame rates. A 22" widescreen appears to be the sweet spot for a lot of people, though.

I have a personal preference for Samsung. It may boil down to individual models though...choose a size, a price, and you will likely get some good recommendations out of this group.
Acer AO521, Asus EEE2G, and an e6300 (EP45-DS3L, 4GB Corsair, 320GB 7200.10, EVGA GT250, Corsair VX450W and Samsung 2043BW)
