Default New build, please look.

My first build.
Ive been picking up parts for a bit as things have been going on sale for the holidays. Pretty much have most everything already or has been ordered. I still have to get a monitor and os. My buget is around $150 for monitor and 100 for os. Any help there would be great. Otherwise I just need to know if there are any major problems.

Thanks in advance!!!

Spend the Extra Money on a better PSU like the CX 500 or 600.

Edit : Also for the Os Just get Windows 7 or 8

Either copy of Windows and either an Asus, Samsung, Dell, or NEC monitor 1080p that fits in your budget.

+1 to PSU. Drop the junk and get something quality.

Ok, getting a better psu.
If I get an OEM copy can I put it on an SSD later?
No compatibility issues?

An OEM copy of Windows will be fine.
