gpu: gtx 670 ftw or msi gtx660ti pe
cpu:i5 3570k
hdd: wd caviar blue 1tb
ssd:kingston hyperx 3k 120gb
dvd drive: lite on 24x dvd burner
ram: corsair 16gb

cpu cooler: cooler master hyper 212 evo
psu: corsair hx850 modular power supply

price-$1,434.90 (for the gtx670 ftw for the 660ti it would be about $1,345)

i wont be paying for the monitor but what would be a good one, i want 1080p and i dont know if i should get 120hz or 60hz. if i get 120hz its 200 bucks more expensive and i already know which one i would get. what would be a good 60hz monitor?

I'd say you don't really need an 850w PSU, unless you're planning on adding parts later, like another GPU.

Also, I would go with the 670, since it fits in your budget. Everything else looks good to me.

As for the monitor, there are some pretty good 60hz monitors for very cheap right now. Newegg has had one on sale almost every day this week at 23".
