Post BUILDING NEW COMPOOTR
Here are the parts.
I know I went through this with a few #LD people, but I really really need to be 10000% sure that everything is right.
Are there any pieces I'm missing/incompatibilities with parts?

NOTE: I already own the GFX card, so don't list that as a missing part.

Unless he's planning on overclocking it, the stock cooler should be fine.

I don't need any overclocking.
If I do decide to overclock it, I can do that later.

Stock coolers have been sufficient for years now. As for the GFX card. Well, just go out and buy something in the 150$ mark.

This is the card(s) I have. (I won 2 in a contest, but I plan to sell the other to pay for the computer.)

bawww ;___;

Anyways, that set-up seems pretty good Migs. Just one question- you do have money besides the potential profit from selling that spare card, right? Because I doubt it would cover your entire cost.

Well I have roughly 150 dollars, then the 250 from the card is 400 dollars. My Dad agreed to pay the rest.

EDIT: Ooh, July 4th sale. I'm gonna buy this monitor instead. Just to make sure, there's no way this monitor could be incompatible with my current set up right?
