    1920 x 1280 would be better and 23-24"

    I think you can do better for similar money. Let me comment on your choices and then after I'll paste in a build for your consideration.

    CASE: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129087
    For bling fine but for cost you can do as well or better for a lot less
    MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131702
    Your is a z67 and should be a z68 to max capabilities and longevity
    Video Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130661
    Fine. As an alternative you could go with an AMD 6870 or 6950
    PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817256059
    550w-650w is plenty. Stick with the brand or another top
    CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115072
    The i7 might give some value for the CAD work but for gaming the i5 series is better. If you want to OC the i5 then your choice of the 2500k is good. If you won't OC then the i5-2400 will do as well unOC'd but cost less
    RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145345
    Voltatge is fine but those tall spikes can cause clearance issues with the cpu cooler
    HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148840
    Prices are really ihg. If you can get by with a 500gb now it would be a better use of money. If this is the only drive you should consider the WD Black series. If you are going to use an SSD then a regular Hdd would be ok. In the build below there is an SSD/Hdd combo
    OD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827106289
    Ok
    OS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832116986
    Ok
    CUP COOLER: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103057
    Ok or the CM 212
    50MM fan for the mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835119052
    Not sure its needed

    Current price @ newegg is $1247.
    Finally the monitor i have is a 18 inch(square) dell E173FP 1280x1024 @60Hz or 16 ms response time. Should i invents in a new monitor? YES
    EDIT: critique my build! i'm open to most changes


    Now for an alternative: $1247 but with an SSD
