Secondary harddisk?

or do you plan on only having 128GB total storage?

WD Caviar Black is always an excellent choice.

next month ill get a hard drive, i would rather have 128gb of storage for a month and have a better graphics card then buy an ssd and a hdd and have to settle for a gtx 660ti or 7950

Looks good. Personally I prefer a 23ish inch monitor, but that's a preference. Build and enjoy.
