My questions are:

1. Do I need to buy a cooling fan for CPU or just use the one come with it? I don't plan overclock now.

2. Could someone recommend a monitor for me? Price below 200 is prefered.

3. Is my choice of case and power ok? I know Rosewill is not a big brand.

Any other suggestion is welcome, thanks in advance.

Am advocating single GPU set ups so config is not for SLI


A few things u should know about SATA/USB 3.0 tech and mobos as shown by our very own forums here
USB 3.0, SATA 6Gb/s, Motherboards, And Overcoming Bottlenecks

Also note that LGA 1156 shall be usurped by LGA 1155 as soon as end of this year/possible Q1 next year if u intending to sink a wee bit on chip + board FYI...

Are you suggesting that if I choose i5 CPU and LGA 1156 mobo, there might be some problems for future update?

BTW, do you know anything about rosewill case and power?
