Could go for the ASUS VH242H(search it up). I think ASUS makes better monitors than Acer would. 23.6" and it's $169.99 on Newegg + Rebate. Could save the extra $10-20 to get maybe a better cooler.

Another suggestion is that the Silverstone Rv02 is also $139.99 on Amazon + Rebate. Better looking(my opinion), and may be able to keep the case cooler.
