I am also looking for a 24' monitor to go with this that would be included in the $1500.
This is my first new build from scratch so thanks in advance for any assistance.

ugly and excessivly large case, and the cpu is overkill compared to the gpu in games but for the rest great build.

Good question. If you plan on adding another 460 soon then get the 460 ortherwise the 470. And I'd get the xfx 850 for 470 sli and xfx 750 for 460sli. To leave room for overclocks.
