I don't keep mine past about 2 years so it's not worth it to me. It does make it more desirable when it comes time to sell it, but you won't make all that back so unless you plan to keep it for 5 years, I don't recommend it.

That was my point. Even at non-native resolution it looks awesome. I'm not so sure many games support...
I have the 17" WUXGA TrueLife with the 7900GS on my 1705 and I love it. I run NFS Most Wanted at 1600x1200 and it's awesome. That's the only action game I play, but I can't believe how smooth it is. I'm very glad I got this screen.
