My main concern is the GPU and monitor More about : core build final config check Proximon September 15, 2010 8:29:12 PM The GPU is massive overkill unless you are gaming. If you are gaming then for that monitor I would recommend at least a GTX 460 1GB. Other than that it's OK. If you downgrade the GPU you might consider a smaller PSU as well for efficiency reasons.
