i would add a coolermaster hyper 212 pLus for CPU cooling the 300 illusion has plently of case fans.

your gonna need a little more powerful graphics card if u go with a 1900x1200 monitor

i suggest a HD6950 2GB

also a Corsair TX750w V2 power supply

seagates 7200.11 hard drives had problems and many died .

any that are still around have been on a shelf for a couple of years . Best avoided
