Very good card runs much cooler and quieter than the reference designed one.
Why not bigger monitor? maybe 23"?

Looks good. +1 to ilysaml's recommendation to get a bigger monitor.
I've been pretty happy with my ASUS vh242h and it is only a couple bucks more after MIR:

I think it should be fine mate

alright! Any other opinions?

It's a fine system but two suggestions:
You might want to up the RAM to 16GB, video work gobbles it up-Get it while it's cheap!
I'd also suggest a second hard drive, either in RAID with the Samsung or a 1 Tb unit for bulk storage.
