Thanks for the responses. I know that my PSU might seem a bit overkill, but I plan on doing SLI in the future, around Christmas, and it's recommended to be around that ballpark for the configuration. Regarding my monitor, it's my primary use as a display, but I also might use a flat screen TV or get a new monitor that uses a higher res in the future. As for the AMD processor, I would like to steer clear of those. I know that they tend to be in plenty of budget builds, but from as far as I can tell, Intel would fit more of my needs than an AMD.
