Micro ATX slim gaming pc, plus potential mod idea

alright, i have a spare phenom 2 x4 965 black edition laying around so i decided i wanna use it as the basis for a slim gaming pc i can take to my friends house so i dont have to lug my 2500 dollar machine around.

this is the part list i have for the pc. without including the phenom 2, the price is roughly 400 dollars. so hows the list look?

AMD Phenom 2 x4 965 BE

Sentey Slim 2420 case with PSU (275-450w)

Powercolor Low Profile 7750

Biostar AM3+ A960+ micro atx mobo
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138373

4 (2x2) gig 1333 PNY ram
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820178590

generic 2.5 inch drive 320 gig

with Windows 8, becuase i havent used it yet lol :P

now for the slight mod idea. its slightly crazy but i would like to attach a screen that is no bigger in length than the case and that can fold down when no in use. my questions are do they make monitors that are 12-13 inches, and is this an even remotely plausible mod idea? lol

    No need to buy ram for this, as the motherboard comes with 8gb 1600mhz ram for free. They do make 12 inch screens, but unless you want eye strain, I'd probably just go with a conventional monitor.

    i saw that lol but ive used netbooks and i play alot of handheld games so im no stranger to tiny screens lol and i say that the ram is there just incase, seeing as that is a limited time deal
