So, I am building a new computer for my girlfriend and need some help finalizing my choices, and narrowing down the cost some without loosing performance. I need everything for this build except for the hard drive and power supply I already got because I happen to have gotten some good discounts on them from my work.

Also from working at Best Buy, I get access to some AMD discounts coming in a few days for the graphics cards, will probably be a 6950 2gb but I wont know for sure for a couple days. I plan to overclock the cpu and graphics card as much as possible and leave some headroom for possible crossfire in the future, which is why I got such a high wattage cpu. Any advice narrowing down and lowering the cost on my parts would be awesome. Especially the monitor, I know it has a deal going right now but is it really that good or are there any better options for the money?
What would be the advantage to the p8p67 pro? I have heard some quite good things about the asrock, and some less then good about the p8p67 board. I have built a computer before but I am by no means an expert, what advantages to it?
I also am not quite sure about what cpu cooler to get. The hyper 212 evo looks good from most reviews, but I can also get some liquid cooling with the h60 from work for about 60 bucks, is that extra 25 worth it to get the h60?
Also, among the list of $125 mobos across the brands is asrock the best?
