Are you buying a monitor: Yes
OS: Ubuntu with LXDE
Location: Belfast, UK
Overclocking: No, but i choose i5-3570K ( Intel HD Graphics 4000 ) because it has better graphics then i5-3570 ( Intel HD Graphics 2500 ) and I am thinking to wait a while before i buy GeForce card. And these CPU are just ~£3 difference.
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

My build:
CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor (£161.99 @ Aria PC)

+
Monitor: AOC i2353Fh 23'' (~£140) or Lg ips235v 23'' (~130)
ideal monitor would be with H-IPS but the prices, so just IPS is good.
Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Why Are You Upgrading: I'm having trouble running Blender and it is time to go for my 8 years old computer which I build. so lots to learn for me since that time ;) 


My main questions:
1. Do the components match and what You think about them according to my needs?
2. How good Blender work on Intel HD Graphics 4000 included in Intel Core i5-3570K?
3. Any suggestion on monitor for my purposes ?

Thank you

thanks AMD Radeon.

I am asking about Intel HD Graphics 4000 because i want to wait a month or 2 before I buy gtx 660, if Intel HD Graphics 4000 is working good with rendering in blender.
