The PC is good. I would however change the HDD to a WD blue.

I don't know how good the monitor & mouse is though

its a good build but why not get the 3570K it will last you longer than your current choice and you will also be able to OC it in the future to make it last even longer

That computer you built can run about any game, but you could do a bit better.

A 7870 GHz is about equal to a 660ti, surprassing it in some areas. This setup will run any game on high-max settings
