ok $1500 is plenty for a build, there is no reason to go with a refubrished monitor, if instead of copying your cart you can use this format that way we can get basic info that its needed.

moving on, this is what I recommend for the money

5850 is better than 5770 for alot, i'd recomend to get either the 5850 or 5870, the 5770 and 5750 are not worth looking right now, unless you are on a budget build

As mentioned above, edit your post to this format, as it answers a lot of questions that we may have like resolution of monitor..etc:

That HSF snakej suggested is not very good at it's price.
Getting an air cooler would be around the same performance or even better

Unless you overclock aggressively, you don't need that mobo snakej suggested.
