I strongly suggest an SSD.

I strongly suggest a SeaSonic G Series 550W http://pcpartpicker.com/part/seasonic-power-supply-ssr550rm

I also recommend a Asus or Gigabyte mobo and a Gigabyte 970, but that's personal preference.

SSD would be much better, more responsive.

I'm assuming this will be mostly for gaming? If you don't mind getting a tn panel as opposed to the ips, I would recommend getting something with 1-2ms response time. 

 

Also, although I think the actual PC is a very nice build, I do think the monitor will not do it justice. However, if you are happy with 1080, don't care for gsync, and prefer the better colors/viewing angles of the ips, then the monitor you picked will do.

 

For reference I have a benq gl2460 which serves me extremely well and cover all my needs.

I am confused. I've done researched and Linus loves IPS panel, do you notice the difference between 1-2ms and 5-7ms?

The nzxt h440 comes in blue, if you don't want to spend as much, the s340 does too.

Oh shoot! Was that offensive! (I don't care).

I am confused. I've done researched and Linus loves IPS panel, do you notice the difference between 1-2ms and 5-7ms?

Everyone does, they look outright better. And he said in one of his reviews he prefers advantages of the ips over the tn. But for me is the opposite applies since my pc is firstly for gaming and everything else comes second. Ill take the tn over the ips since I've never been big on viewing quality anyway. Also, many of the games I play are fast paced so I figured I'd stick with the lower response.

 

Even so, 5ms is still ok for gaming. There are some cheaper tn panels that have that response time and the big push again ips for gaming is more when they have like 15ms.

I strongly suggest a SeaSonic G Series 550W (or XFX XTR 550W, they're the same thing) http://pcpartpicker.com/part/seasonic-power-supply-ssr550rm

I also recommend a Asus or Gigabyte mobo and a Gigabyte 970, but that's personal preference.

I like the Crucial MX100 SSD http://pcpartpicker.com/part/crucial-internal-hard-drive-ct128mx100ssd1

You should really get an SSD at least for Windows

 

This is identical to the SeaSonic G Series 550W and costs $6 more than what you're getting with some promo thing

http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1550bbefx

 

Even at $80, it's SO much more worth it over the $60 Corsair PSU. Most Corsair PSU's aren't very good.

 

 

Features is something you will need to figure out yourself on a motherboard, too much variation.

I recommend trying to find an Asus or Gigabyte mobo with all the features you like if it doesn't cost anymore still.

nanokomputer.com and enterkomputer.com are in IDR, you might want to choose that instead of PCPartPicker.
