Thinking of building a new PC ($1750 budget)

So a chance for me to sell my gaming PC has come up and I can get a good price for it. So with that being said I'm thinking of building a new one after that. Here is what I would be looking for. Gaming PC with some video/photo editing because I'm getting into photography. I would like a SSD and I will need a monitor. I don't need a big monitor probably something in the range of 23-27. I've heard good things about the ones that have that high resolution. 1440p I think they are called? Anyways what do you guys think I could get. To recap I'll need. Computer, and monitor. No keyboard/mouse or OS.

Well, it would be 1770 + taxes but you get $50 dollars in mail rebates which reduce the cost to 1720 + taxes, but you still have to pay those 50 dollars...

Anyways you can reduce the SSD memory by half and same 100 dollars...

I wouldn't spend the extra money on the GHz 7970. You can get nearly the same clocks on the basic version
