  1. Looks very nice. If you want a Asus monitor, you may want to check out the ergofit models:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236086

    They have won a lot of awards for being great monitors in their price range. There are other colors/sizes if you prefer.

    Otherwise it looks like something I would build myself. Great motherboard, CPU, ram. The only thing I would do differently is I prefer modular PSU's.
  2. Oh yeah, have you considered an SSD boot disk? Because you really should think about it.
  3. I have thought about a ssd. I might get one in the future, however i don't really think it will make too much of a difference for me to worry about it right now. Although i guess i dont really have any true experience with ssd to know how much of a difference it will make.
  4. soory for double posting. That is a modular psu.
