I know Dell's monitors are just Samsung with the dell name slapped on. If HP sells Samsung monitors on their site (just as dell does) I would imagine HP uses their screens as well.

There is nothing wrong with that build at all...I have a similar (expect my CPU would be slower than that wolfdale) and i already can play CoD4 at the max etc. The 8800GT is a great card for not much at all. if you want to spend some extra money for a little better gaming then the 8800GTS (G92) which is around 60 bucks more is even more powerful.

It will run every game so far released at good settings (including Crysis), and you can always upgrade to a new graphics card in the future.

Prices do seem to have fallen on the G92 8800 GTS so that's also an option.

That 120 is for your case....you could go with a really good and sturdy one for around $45 bucks but it's not the most flashy and put that money again into better parts. Or you could get a pretty flashy one that is good considering you will probably want to show it off to your friends if you are 15.
