First Build - Finally settled on my parts? Thoughts?

I deleted my previous thread, it was too cluttered. Here is what I decided after going back and forth a hundred times. This is going to be my first build and an upgrade over my current PC, so I feel like I'll be satisfied. Comments & suggestions are welcome. I wanted to keep my build around $700, so if you suggest a different part do make my budget go over $1000 or something crazy. I still need to buy a monitor so I'm taking suggestions for that as well. I signed up for a 30 day trial at Newegg, there Premiere member plan, so I can ship parts back for free if I want to do an exchange. I ordered everything on the lists below except the mobo, I ordered an incorrect one, I will be ordering the one below tomorrow and shipping the old one back. Hopefully I have to monitor to order as well. I can order from Amazon, Newegg, Best Buy, Staples and TigerDirect.
