Looks okay to me
Consider a GTX 460 1GB full, not the SE (shoddy edition).
And I do not recommend the TA880G for the 1090T processor, the power phase will NOT be able to handle it at all and there will be no CrossfireX/SLI expandability.

Go with this monitor or this monitor. Viewsonic are a much better choice for monitors than ASUS.

Idk, I saw this chart and I picked the SE version since the only differences between the 460 GTX SE and 460 GTX were:

Shader Units: 48
Core Clock: 27 MHz
Memory Clock: 50 MHz

I might be wrong. Correct me if I am.
