Well is the monitor included in the budget or no? If it is, then I'll suggest a cheaper card.

One more question. Should I stick with the stock fan that comes with the i5 or buy a different one? Do I has to apply thermal gel or w.e it is with the stock or only with 3rd party?

The stock fan on the i5 2400 is pretty good. But if you think you need a aftermarket cooler then the Hyper 212+ is all you'll need. AS5 is the best priced aftermarket paste.

Im thinking about getting i5 2500k. If you put that into your computer would you stick with the stock fan or buy a aftermarket?
