I'm thinking of building a new computer. I'm trying to keep it as cheap as possible but still be capable of playing starcraft II on ultra.

The monitor is kind of a placeholder for now. I'll worry about it later. I'm thinking about not purchasing the video card for a few months and just going with onboard graphics for the time being as well. Any suggestions? This is my first build ever.

That's a good idea, though hed be willing to spend some more, for some reason I though that monitor was 1650*1080.

I think the PSU is a bit overkill.

The 2 PSUs Comes out to be the same price after Combos/MIRs, so Id get the 700W for the sake of having some extra headroom.

Yeah. If there aren't that much different in price then get the bigger PSU since you'll only use what the system requires and gives you room for upgrades.
