Here are some of the parts I've put together, not too shabby if I do say so myself.

LG E2242C-BN 21.5IN Widescreen LED Backlit LCD Monitor 1920x1080 5MS 5M:1 VGA VESA Mount Black

Microsoft 800 Wireless Keyboard ENGLISH/FRENCH

Corsair CX Series CX500 500W ATX 12V 80 Plus Bronze Power Supply 140mm Fan

Logitech X-140 2.0 5W RMS Black Analog Speakers W/ Headphone Jack & Auxiliary Input

Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM 64MB SATA 6Gbps 3.5in Internal Hard Drive - OEM
Okay I like these suggestions so far, and I think I might go with integrated graphics to help cut costs like the other poster suggested. This is what I got so far:

CASE: APEX TM-524 Micro ATX Case (Includes 300W PSU) $49.99
MOBO: ASUS P8B75-M LGA 1155 Intel Micro ATX $83.99
CPU: Intel Pentium G860 LGA 1155 $89.99
PSU: Included in case; 300W.
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM $69.99
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3 1600 (2x4GB) $37.99
SPEAKERS: Logitech X-140 2.0 5W $29.99
KEYBOARD: Microsoft 800 $14.99 OR Rosewill Wireless mouse/keyboard combo $49.99
MONITOR: LG E2242C-BN 21.5" $89.99

With the first keyboard that would be $469 NOT including tax and shipping and handling.
If I can trim this down a bit without losing too much performance that would be good.
Don't think u can get a cheaper 20IN+ monitor. Probably can go cheaper on MOBO, CPU, HDD, and maybe RAM but would probably only save like 10 bucks on the RAM tbh.

What you guys think?

+ I imagine I can't go too too cheap on the MOBO cause then the integrated graphics would probably be even worse no?
