Before I'm beaten to death by the community, I used a z170 board for future upgrades. OP can get a cheaper one if they want.

If I were to get an i5 4460 and an AsRock mobo to lower the price and get an ssd would that make it worse? (Performance wise)

I already threw in an SSD after an edit, so refresh the page. And yes, will lower the performance if you get a high-end graphics card later on.

From what I can tell the Ultra II is a bit faster.

That monitor just isn't worth the price.

depends if you want an IPS panel or not.

But I chose a $100 IPS monitor that is slightly smaller.

It would probably be smarter for them to replace it later when it would make sense and use the saved money on something else.
