  1. 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
  3. well, how much are you willing to spend on the monitor? =p

    I currently have.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236117

    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.
