just find yourself a monitor. Amazon has a lot of nice LED 2ms ones to choose from.

This build allows you to add another one of those cards later on if you so choose.

Even after the monitor i would still have some money left so wouldn't it be better to get a 7970 now and if so would i need a larger PSU to be able to crossfire in the future?

Yep your right. In fact I don't know why I didn't throw in a 7970 in that build now that I think about it.

850w psu for dual 7970's.
