Here are some good ones:
Newegg.com - ASUS VH226H Black 21.5" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen 16:9 Full HD 1080P LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 (ASCR 12000 : 1) Built in Speakers - LCD Monitors

Newegg.com - Acer H213H bmid Black 21.5" 5ms HDMI Full HD 1080P Widescreen 16:9 LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 ACM 20000:1 Built in Speakers - LCD Monitors

Newegg.com - Acer X233Hbid Black 23" 5ms HDMI Full 1080P Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 40000:1 (ACM) - LCD Monitors

Thermal paste is a very high heat conductive paste. It fills in all microscopic imperfections on the heatsink and CPU/GPU that can trap air in them and cause a loss in the heatsink抯 performance. It basically transfers heat from the cpu to the heatsink. I think TX-2 is the easiest to work with and tests show it's one of the best.

It's designed to fill in whatever tiny scratches might be on either surface for improved thermal conductivity (so more heat goes into the heatsink) - it's very simple, just 'inject' a little dab on and it'll do it's thing.

The HD 4850X2 is an awesome card for the money. I love mine. Glad I made that choice.

WARNING: Make SURE that your case has enough room for this card. It's the longest card probably ever made. You'll need atleast 12" between the I/O slot and the end of the card.

I had the thermaltake shark, the card wouldn't fit. I had to transfer all my stuff into my Antec P180 and remove the center HDD mount to have enough room for this card.

My recommendation is try to find a case that is "eATX".

How come you're not fond of the 900?

It's a dust magnet? I heard great reviews about it. I actually thought the longest when looking between the Antec 900 and eATX. What deterred me was that I couldn't find a nice yet practical eATX =(.

I use a Gigabyte Aurora 570 which is a full tower eATX case designed for water cooling.
