Take your pick of thermal paste. Also, have a look on the site, there's a wide range of monitors for you to pick. This is another one of those areas where personal taste is a factor.
Also, as to why you should not buy off ebay? Its more expensive, its unreliable, and you do NOT want to have to chase warranty up through that. Buying from a reputable store is far, far easier for you.
I know you've picked best anser and all, but I noticed this - an ATX motherboard will fit in an ATX case, but so will a mini-ATX motherboard. All motherboard will conform to a standard (mini-ITX, mini-ATX, ATX - I'm sure there's others) and cases will allow a set of motherboard standards. For yourself, you'd be looking for an ATX setup
