Hello all, so this is a mid-range budget rig I went for, all parts are already bought and are ready to be assembled. Everything was purchased from MicroCenter, I got some awesome deals. I know it is not the best for gaming but it should be solid. I have an older 22' Dell monitor that I am currently using with my rig now that needs to be upgraded. Does anyone have any ideas as to what a decent 1920x1080 monitor for gaming would cost and if so, which one? I am shooting for one from anywhere between $99-149.

CPU: FX 8350
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3
CPU Cooler: CM Hyper 212 EVO
RAM: Corsair Ballistix Sport 1600 Mhz, 8 gigs (2x4)
PSU: Corsair CM 750M
Optical Drive: LG Generic $15
Case: CoolerMaster HAF 912
GPU: R9 290X Superclocked
Case Fan: 200mm Cooler Master
SSD: Samsung Evo 250GB
HDD: WD 1 TB Caviar Blue 7,200 RPM, 64 MB Cache
OS: Windows 8.1 64-bit

Please let me know what you think as constructively as pssoible, which you always do!:)  Thank you so much.
Enjoy your weekend!

I am not sure what PSU you selected (there is no Corsair CM 750M). I wouldn't recommend the Corsair CX series. Other than that it looks good.
Seasonic 750watt

I would suggest Asus monitors in that price range. There is a better choice of monitors in the $175 - 250 range.
