It's been a while since I built out my rig, and in the end, I got
Gigabyte Motherboard, with SATA 6.0 USB 3.0
Intel Core i7-930
Radeon HD 5770
Crucial SATA 6.0GB/s SSD, 128 GB
(tossed in a used 400 GB SATA drive I had laying around for older games)
The $150 amount I quoted earlier was the "OMFG that is such a freaking deal, I'll never regret that" price
In the end I paid about $200 for the graphics and am quite satisfied.
Also FWIW, the monitor's resolution is 1920*1200, but it's a 24 inch model.
