Hi guys. I'm gonna purchase my parts next week or the week after. I just need some advice or suggestions for this set-up.

I need help to decide what good 24" LED monitor should I buy. My budget for the monitor would be $200 max $250.
I need help with the GPU too. I plan to SLi it in the future or if there is a better GPU at that price range. I am open to other options like AMD to crossfire.
I need help to decide which of the two computer case should I pick. I prefer a good cable management with enough room for a radiator in the future.

Monitor: Asus VE248H

Case: Thermaltake out of those two. Since you plan to SLI I'd go with a case that has great air flow like Antec 1200

Your psu is a bit low for 2x gtx670s. I'd either go with SeaSonic X750 Gold 750W like the one you had or save $50 and grab Antec EarthWatts Series EA-750 Green 750W

The rest looks fine. If you do a lot of graphic design I'd keep your cpu/ram but if it's more of casual usage I'd probably drop down to i5 3570k and 8GB RAM and if you feel you need more RAM buy another 8GB later.

I'd get the VH238H. 23" looks better at 1080p than 24".

I noticed the prices on their website is not the final price for some products. Like the Asrock motherboard it was posted $130ish but in my cart it went down to $84ish. :lol:
