Maybe drop the case and cooler down to fit the monitor in, I sort of overlooked that sorry. If you don't plan to sli then you can drop the psu down and maybe to a non modular which should save you some money.

If hes not playing games at all, why not just use onboard video and drop the GPU all together, and get a 500W PSU?

Take that 250 and get a good SSD, Crucial M4 64 or 128GB. You'll love the boot speeds and load time of any apps you install on it.

The one andrew listed has DVI and VGA outputs. There isnt an onboard chipset because it uses the GPU onboard the CPU.

Is an H100 really necessary if he isn't going to be playing games? Doesn't seem like he would be overclocking much for general daily use. IMO he should get a Hyper 212+ or even just stick to stock cooling...

Use the money saved and invest in some kind of SSD. Especially if you're suggesting a Z68 board.
