Default rig planning

Hello Linus, i'm planning on building a rig over a period of time and wondered if I should make any changes or you could give me any suggestions. this is the rig:

Asus Xonar D2 7.1 PCI Sound Card

LG BH10LS30 10x BluRay-RW / 16 x DVD±RW Lightscribe Drive - Black (OEM)

Corsair Professional Series AX750 High Performance 750W Modular '80 Plus Gold' Power Supply

AMD Bulldozer FX-8 Eight Core 8150 Black Edition 3.60Ghz (Socket AM3+) Processor

Asus Crosshair V Formula, AMD 990FX, S AM3+, DDR3, SATA III - 6Gb/s, RAID SATA, PCIe 2.0 (x16), ATX

Corsair Memory Dominator GT 8GB DDR3 1866 Mhz CAS 9 XMP DHX Dual Channel Desktop

MSI HD 6970 Lightning ATI - AMD Radeon Graphics Card - 2GB

Corsair Force GT 120GB 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s Solid State Drive

Seagate Barracuda Green 2TB SATA 6Gb/s Hard Drive

Steelseries Sensei Pro Laser Gaming Mouse

Boogie Bug AimB.Pad XL Gaming Mouse Surface

Cooler Master Storm Trooper Full Tower Gaming Case

Would you suggest i get a smaller case if so which 1 has good air flow? preferrably nothing too flashy. What sort of monitor should I get? I don't want go above 24" though. Get back to me as soon as possible.

thanks for reading, bye! :D

I would go for a 2500K over an FX8150, or even a 1100T.
Other then that, looks fine too me.
