I use the AOC 24" Widescreen LCD TV/Monitor 1080p, 1920x1080, 10000:1, 6:9 for $230, it works great.
Or the AOC 2436VW 24" Widescreen HD Monitor 1080p, 1920x1080, for $139.99
The best HD i found is the Samsung Spinpoint F3 HDD. use 1x1TB or 2x500GG RAD 0.
Or get the Intel X25M 120 GB Solid State Drive $220 for programs and a Spinpoint F3 1TB Spinpoint 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA $60 for data.
