monitor Newegg.com - Acer S201HLbd Black 20" 5ms LED-Backlight LCD monitor 250 cd/m2 ACM 12,000,000:1 (1000:1)

totals up to be $1100.90 with that extra $100 you can either upgrade the cpu to an i7 2600 over the i5 2500, or upgrade the GPU from the 6950 to a 6970, or get something larger than the 20" monitor, but that monitor is one of the highest rated monitors under $200 I found, and also look at the keyboard and mouse and change them if you don't like them, the keyboard I like a lot and the mouse is kind of a generic winner for lots of people, I've used it and liked it.

so tell me what you think of it
