1) Wait until Intel sends out their fixed batch of Sandy Bridge processors and get one of those (and different motherboard)

2) If you have the money, i'd get a SSD to put your OS and programs on; it will cut your load times in half...

I currently have the Razer Lycosa. While it looks great and performs great I do have alot of problems with it as well. Sometimes some of my keys just will not work. I have to unplug and replug it in to get use of the key back.

I also have the Razer Imperator mouse, it works great period.

I sure hope your not planning on using the integrated speakers on the new monitor. I never realized how much more sound there was in my games until I bought a pair of 2.1 speakers, and even those made a world of difference.
