You need to check about the GPU display connection. I feel sure I read that you need DVI on the monitor

hey guys...so it looks like tomorrow is D-day
(he should be coming over and buying it)
huge information dump below
i hate to do this last seconds, but i have a couple more combo deals for you guys to look at.
sorry for dropping all of these links.
No disrespect but the quality components are being dragged down by the dross, the 2500k CPU and the Corsair brand PSU are products renowned for quality and performance, unlike some other brands.[/b]
i know some of the psu or motherboards may not be up to par. thats why i am asking you guys
is it really worth getting Z68? everyone seems to think so...
Please see above and BTW you have answered your own question regarding the Z68 MB
i know some things are bad, but with e huge discounts i could just buy whatever breaks if it does.
i dont expect much out of those bundles, just thought i could show you guys.
some sales ended, and some started...some things need changing
the monitor isnt at the best price it could be anymore
(he wants one that is LED that is at least 20 inches)
the i5 2500k was sold out for quite some time
as of right now, the gpu is still sold out
i found out that he just got a dog and had cats so no bottom facing psu.
and he is going to need a wireless adapter like i linked earlier because he cant use a wire.
after looking at some of those combos, i noticed how little i like the HAF now
this seems to be the better/cheaper choice http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811119240
also as a backup http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811119196
sorry for dragging this build out for so long. you guys have really helped me a lot.
i really do appreciate all you have done for me this far and i still hope the likes on your comments are enough incentive for you to keep answering me questions
EDIT: the gpu i was going to get is deactivated
now how am i going to get a Radeon HD 6950 2GB with the $240 left
also on the wireless adapters, he wont be hitting speeds of 150 mbps anyway right?
so this should be fine? http://www.newegg.co...N82E16833166047
if not then how about this? http://www.newegg.co...N82E16833180073
all i know is that internal wireless adapters go faster, but i never get higher than 30-40 mbps

if you would like to double check here is the link
i think we are good to go!
My fault, in post #68 I offered an explanation of when an add on video card with 2GB of VRam should be used!
i dont remember ever mentioning that he wanted 3 screens,
Depending on your friends intended use of the computer in the future will strongly influence the decision, to give you an idea, for using 3 or more screens or a single screen larger than 32" an add on card with 2GB of VRam should be used, for anything less a single high end 256-bit video card complimented by a quality CPU, Ram and PSU is adequate.
