I like that LEPA and Asrock, but you can't really go wrong with any of the choices you listed.

thanks for the combo links ...i had one more doubt usually when i buy anything from newegg they send the coupons the next day should i order one part and wait for the coupons or directly talk to them what i am going to purchase and see if they can provide the coupons in advance.

i was looking for any reviews of the monitor for gaming do you know anything about the monitor hpzr24w

http://www.amazon.com/HP-ZR24w-24-inch-S-IPS-Monitor/dp... <---- If that's the one your talking about...IPS is good for viewing angles and clarity, but they suck for gaming for the fact IPS panels have slow response time and that usually leads to ghosting in regards to gaming. That monitor in the link has a 7ms response time which is super slow for a gaming monitor.

I would look for a monitor with 5ms at the highest even though most gaming monitors have a 2ms response time.
