1100$ build

I have these parts for my first build, I am missing a Monitor though. I have everything and i cant afford an ssd right now so im getting a 7200RPM caviar. Can anyone give me any cheaper alternatives so i have more to spend on a 22" HDMI Monitor(Does anyone have reccomendations for that, cheap, and a link please)

i5 2500k CPU: 179.99
Amd radeon 7870 GPU: 349.99$
ASUS 24X DVD-RW burner: 21.99$
Coolermaster HAF 912 Case: 59.99$
AsRock Pro3 Gen3 mobo: 104.99$
Corsair enthusiast series TX650 650W power supply:89.99$
Team Xtreem Dark Series 8GB 1600mhz RAM: 43.99$
WD Caviar Blue 7200RPM 500GB HDD: 84.99$
CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO.:34.99
Can i get any alternatives for the power supply too? Also any alternatives to anything up there is welcome. This build is costing me 970.91$ so far. I have about 100 dollars now and i plan on purchasing this in mid-July or august. My birthday is in july and i expect to get about $200 for it. I am working in between and i plan on selling my laptop(Toshiba Satellite C655 with a pentium b940(sandybridge) CPU, intel hd graphics 3000 4gb RAM, 500GB 5400 RPM HDD, and WEI score of 5.1) and my ipod touch 4th gen, anyone have any idea on how much i can get out of selling those? Also, I'll be 14 in july so i need ways to make money, I plan on mowing lawns, fixing comps(im kind of tech savvy, have read COMPTIA A+ so i know the basics), and anything else. Does anyone have ideas on that? I know this is off topic but I need help with all of these. Thanks guys, the community here is amazing and i have changed my setup a lot and gotten it better.
