For $10.00 more, you can upgrade your mobo and video card to pci-xpress. And if you are not over clocking you can use Corsair Value Select ram and be right back to the same price range with better stuff. Value select ram is great, just cant OC with it.

Just a suggestion. But well worth it. Cant really OC without upgrading some other things like Fans and a heatsink anyways. And yes, you need a proccesor, venice cores are great. BTW..dont know if size matters to you or not...but there is a monitor I seen in a earlier post that looked nice and was a bit cheaper (not from N.E.) but *cheaper*

CPU - Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz
Mobo - ASRock Z77 Extreme4
GPU - EVGA 02G-P4-3660-KR GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB
RAM - G.SKILL 8GB DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
H.D. - Corsair Force Series GT 120GB SATA III (SSD)
PSU - CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12V
Case - COOLER MASTER Storm Scout
Monitor - Dual Hanns-G HW191D 19" Flat Panel
OS - Windows 7 Home 64 bit
