Welcome to TechIMO.
Only thing to change is your screen, to something that supports 1920x1080 so you can make good use of that blu-ray player and graphics card.
Newegg.com - LG W2353VP-PF Glossy Black 23" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DC 70000:1(1000:1)
Thats a little bit more but it has a 10% discount promo code.
