I'd disagree a little with Gary here. If you want to save some money definitely go for a high quality PSU but with the right case you don't really need a modular PSU IMO (they cost more) and you can make your cable layout quite neat..
I'd look seriously at the Dell U2312HM IPS monitor. I have the non Led U2311 IPS and it is terrific for photo work. Dell do do deals if you are a member of some auto club or something.

Modulars are great, but not imperative. Especially if you have a non-windowed case. But if you're budget allows it and a SSD, then stay modular.

But honestly, make sure you grab a SSD.

I think splitting the difference is "THE" choice and that's semi modular. I wish all PSU's were lay'd out that way.
