The only thing that caught my admittedly untrained eye was the lack of a graphics card. Assuming the preceding bundle is not only functional, but also a good deal, what graphics card should I grab?

Also, I'm not sure if it's relevant, but I was planning on getting this monitor:

Thanks =)

You may want to get a different power supply. I havent heard good things about DiabloTek.

I just saw that as well, so I'm going with the following bundle:

Same thing, but with a Rosewill Stallion Series RD500-2SB 500W PSU.

If everything else looks good, I'll buy it and a cheap gpu.

Rosewill Stallion PSUs are a step up from Diablotek units, but must still be avoided. Now unlike Diablotek, whose units are 100% crap, Rosewill units are hit or miss. Stallion are miss.

Ah, thank you. I guess bollocks to the bundle, then. What are some good inexpensive PSU brands?

If anyone is curious, I ended up going with a solid Corsair CX and MSI GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB gpu.

The total cost for everything was about 600$, so not a bad semi-budget buy.
