Finishing my gaming rigg up

Hello. I'm a SWTOR end-game gamer. I always wanted to build my first computer and Ive done allot of research and I came up with a pretty decent build. My goal is around $1200. Whats missing is a nice monitor and also my GPU. Really want to be able to play on the highest settings with great FPS. Would love to see this beautiful game for what it really is. Also if you see anything that isn't compatible please point it out before I order in the morning.

My current gaming rig:

LITE-ON DVD Burner - Bulk Black SATA Model iHAS124-04 - OEM

Rosewill CHALLENGER-U3 Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case ,comes with Three Fans-1x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1x Top .

    Switch that heatsink out for a Hyper 212 EVO. Significantly better at a similar price.

    Hm. $500 in the running for both? Looks like a $150 monitor and a good 570.
