Most 19" LCDs, use 1280x1024 for non-widescreen, and 1440x900 for widescreen, which the 8800GTS 320mb is good for.

I second the 8800GTS 320 with a monitor of that size.

For that build a 400w could handle it but to give you headroom why not grab the Corsair 520HX if you want a really good PSU or grab an Xclio Greatpower.

One last thing...if you want an arctic Freezer Pro 7 get one off of or who have them for 24 and 22 plus shipping respectively.
