That's a good build for a low budget gaming PC that can game with good frame rates at 1680x1050 or less. But to get a monitor for under $100 to make it work at your stated price, I'd say you are going to have to drop down to a 720p monitor in the 19" widescreen category. Something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I am using a A10-5800k right now that I built for re-sale. It does a surprisingly good job gaming at 1366x768. Played a little BF3 at that rez with mid/high settings and the frame rate was very good. My only complaint is the cheap tiny cooler that AMD supplies with it. I am going to install my spare Phenom II cooler with copper base plate and heat pipes to keep the temps down.

Don't forget you need an operating system too.

Does $460 include a $80 Windows license, too?

The A10 is great for up to about 1366x768, so as long as you get a smaller monitor you will be happy with that system.
