Where's the GPU? Or do you already own a decent card?
Also, if you plan on OCing the 3570k, I'd suggest the ETS-T40.

I have two Radeon 6850s that will suffice until deals start coming out next month.

As for the CPU cooler, I will be using my CoolerMaster 212+. It is an excellent cooler.

Any recommendations for a monitor? :3

well, how much are you willing to spend on the monitor? =p

I currently have.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

2ms refresh rate
led backlight
1080p
60hz
vga, hdmi, dvi
matte screen
Tilt : +20° to -5°
And I love their "ASUS RAPID REPLACEMENT 2 WAY FREE SHIPPING"

I'd suggest you wait for black friday and see if you can pick up this monitor/a similar monitor.

Edit: Here's a slimmer model and without the speakers, 10$ less.
