No a new monitor would not be needed and it is basically optional if you wanted a new monitor.

Your monitor will work with the new computer....BUT....that is an impressive machine you
are building and I would go for a monitor to compliment it.
Something like this...at minimum...:
Amazon.com: HP LA2205wg 22" Inch Widescreen Wide Flat Panel Screen DVI LCD Monitor: Computers & Accessories

Height and tilt adjustment....can rotate for portrait view....energy efficient...great reviews and add my rave review to it
as I have one very similar..HP w2207h

I'm trying to stay under $1000 for the new computer. As you can see below I'm at that price point ($995.76 w/ Free Ship) w/o the new monitor. I will be adding a Maxtor 240gb 7200 HDD, a DVD-CD burner, a USB Iomega 240gb ext. HDD, a FireWire card, and a 5 (30W per channel) fan & temp controller from my existing unit. Next year I plan to crossfire the Radeon HD7850, a second corsair 240gb in Raid 1 and the new monitor. I guess I can wait 6 to 8 months to finish the build.
Thanks for the help.

Are you planning to Crossfire at a later date? If not, you can save some money by going with an AMD 970 based motherboard and getting a lower capacity power supply. Just an idea if you're wanting to save just a bit more money.

Nothing wrong with the monitor you got, yes, with that system it wont handle as high a resolution, but if it were me id keep it now and save my pennies for a newer one down the road.
