30 inch monitors will be expensive. You'd probably save money actually by buying 2 or 3 22-to-24" monitors instead.

Im going with this hard drive:

Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

UNLESS you guys have a better idea. I want a 1tb+ hard drive. I have alot of photos and stuff.

As for monitors, i'm willing to pay alot for a good monitor. I've even considered getting a plasma or LED television. Such as a Vizio.

Also, im not 100% confident in the CPU cooler. What else would be good for just air cooling?

The WD Caviar Black is probably one of the fastest HDDs short of buying a Raptor or a SSD. For gaming, you definitely want to go with a monitor rather than a TV. Since you're spending big bucks on the monitor, I recommend you buy one with a 120Hz refresh rate so you're ready for 3D gaming. As far as a CPU cooler, I highly recommend the Noctua NH-U12P; heard great things about it.

That looks like a good one to me! Check out Dell's lineup of monitors. My dad works with virtual reality, and he uses some high quality monitors. He said, from experience, that Dell makes one of the best.
