Going for a black/ red combo. Could I cut the cost down anymore, without sacrificing the colour combo, or performance?

i would imagine price and 750 is within the margin for optimum efficiency to be honest its closer to the top of the curve than the 650 according to the estimated wattage of your build.

The monitor looks a bit pricey for only being 25", I got a 27" refurbished one that worked like a charm for $127 (USD) just a few months ago, you might want to hold off on the monitor and see if you can find a better deal somewhere first.
