Think about a higher resolution monitor.
Also, a smaller PSU/better GPU, one or the other, you can keep the 750 watt for upgradability, and futureproofing....

Programming using a monitor with a resolution of 1366x768? You're joking, right?

Having been an application developer and systems engineer for over 20 years I wouldn't use a monitor with that low of a resolution. This is the device you stare at all the time.

missed the programming aspect..... yeah he is right... I've used 600x400 monitors for stuff like that.... it stinks..... Plus the higher res means larger desktop....

Thanks for the feedback, I wasn't looking to spend much on the monitor but I suppose it would be a better investment to go for a higher resolution. Any other suggestions?
