The only thing I understood about the original post is that he'd like to find a monitor for $90. I suggested one for $101 (seems close enough.)

Other than that, I got my compass out to make sure I don't lose track of due north. ;)

What was wrong with the parts, and thanks for the choice of monitor.

Nothing is "wrong" with your choices. Normally though "you" start with a budgeted amount and a goal for what the system will be used for (gaming, surfing, school work, htpc, etc.). Then people on this site will offer their best "guesstimate" on what, in their opinion, should be bought to best achieve that goal while staying within the budget (mostly). If all you wanted was a recommendation for a monitor that's cool too! I just misunderstood initially - sorry. :(

Will, honestly, I've been working on this pacific build changing it and everything for some time. I wanted intel so I'm pretty sure the price would be the same no matter what you'd changed... but yeah thanks again. And this build is for gaming (league of legends) and other things...

Glad you went with intel. The Sandy Bridge offers the best upgrade path available today (which is why I went that route myself). Good luck with your build. :)

Thanks, I plan to upgrade to Ivy bridge a little after it's released just to see some benchmarks and reviews of it.
