Should i try to shave costs on my build so i can get a decent monitor?

I recently posted link to my monitor as it turns out its not very good big surprise there since my current pc is a hand me down from my wifes parents. Now i want to know if you guys think it would be in my best interest to

  1. Wait til i have more money and upgrade the monitor later?
  2. Switch out components to try and include a monitor.

I really like my build so i would rather not swap out parts. However if people think it would be better if did i will take it into consideration. Also i'm looking for recommendations for decent monitors for a gaming build.

Monitor(current) :

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor  ($169.99 @ Microcenter)
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler  ($29.99 @ NCIX US)
Motherboard:         Asus P8Z77-V LK ATX  LGA1155 Motherboard  ($124.24 @ NCIX US)
Memory:                  G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2133 Memory  ($49.99 @ Newegg)
Storage:                   Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk  ($109.00 @ Adorama)
Video Card:             Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card  ($366.97 @ Newegg)
Power Supply:         XFX ProSeries 750W 80 PLUS Silver Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply  ($109.99 @ NCIX US)
Total: $1005.17

The 7870 is a really nice card as well so you could save some cash there if you wanted. You might want to drop a size in the power supply as well, especially if you get the 7870. I think they have a minimum requirement of about 500w depending on the manufacturer. I wouldn't swap any other parts though. What size monitor were you looking at getting?

My current monitor is around 19 i would like to stay in that size area.
