  1. I'm not a fan of biostar, I would recommend something else but that's up to you. If your not overclocking or using SLI, you can go with a H77.

    Everything looks decent, you listed 2 psu's, the 600w one is junk, the 530w one is a better unit.
  2. OMG I just saw your monitor resolution.

    I'd recommend getting a new monitor, your parts you chose are complete overkill for such a small monitor, those parts are meant to run 1920x1080, which is standard for today's monitors.

    It'll be the equivalent of buying a very fast car but never going over 40mph. It'll be a complete waste.
  3. decent? are there better parts i could purchase and still be on budget? can you recommend a monitor? or will any brand with your recommended resolution be fine?

    I recommended a motheboard already.

    For monitor, 22" (1920x1080p), Acer, Asus, Samsung are good.
    This is a great deal, sale ends tomorrow though. $120 and free shipping.
