Is this build going to be good enough for the new games(settings can be lowered if required). I won't be playing a lot, and won't be overclocking. Won't need too much space.(If needed, I would pick up a 1 tb hdd later) This is my second build, and the first one wasn't too good, so I want to be sure this time.

Processor: Intel i5-3450
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H77M-D3H
Storage: Corsair Force 3 120 GB SSD
Ram: 2x2 GB Corsair
Graphics Card: ATi Radeon HD 7750(Sapphire/Powercolor)
Monitor: 20" LED Dell/Samsung
Optical Drive: DVD-RW

Also, what's the minimum monitor size I should get to native resolution of 1920x1080?

Id get a 7870 for a GPU. :)  Performs much better.
Usually gaming builds have 8GBs of RAM, depending on what you play, you may or may not need 8GBs. SSD could be better. Id get a Vertex 4 inplace if the Force 3.

7870: Rs 22k
7750: Rs 6.5k
...There's a big difference....
Also, that Vertex 4 is costlier too.

Its a fairly good light gaming, non overclocking rig.

Monitor size is personal preference, many don't like it too small and some say that above ~25" the pixels become too large. I personally use a 24" and its perfect.

As for the technical question of size to resolution, it doesn't matter. If it is listed to support 1920x1080, it will do so regardless of physical size.

Also, where is your PSU?

If that's the case, then 20" monitor is enough for me. I have a good Cabinet and a good 650W PSU, more specifically, COOLER MASTER GX BRONZE 650W

CoolerMaster PSUs arent known to be great but I guess it will do. Atleast get a 7770? :D  It shouldnt be much above the 7750 in terms of price.

Wut about getting HD 7850? and OC the hell out of it :D  . Been hearing some people in Overclocker.com getting around 50% overclock on their 7850.
