Leaves you $570 for a 27" monitor and possibly an SSD if you want one.
The monitors seem to be about $260-$400 1-3ms response times( for the reasonable ones anyway ) Samsung P2770FH seems to have the lowest $299
that generally leaves you with $200-270 for an SSD if you want one and that amount of money gets a good SataIII 120GB model.
The i7 2600k won't really help you any in gaming scenarios but it is a better processor, so if you want it, it will do everything the i5 2500k will.
As for the SSD if you want to go for something which installs a few games, that depends a lot on the games. I would choose a 120GB model if you plan to install much more than the OS and the most used applications.
