This machine is mostly for gaming and i m thinking duo 24" monitor(any recommandations on gpu <$300). 

This build is missing psu, because i am not sure how many watts psu to get. 

Do i still need a heatsink fan for the cpu if i m not over clocking?

Is this build compatible? Any recommendations/comments is appreciated.

Thank you in advance!

For $280 with rebates you can get the Sapphire 7950 which is faster then the 7870. You will not need a CPU fan since the CPU includes the stock fan which is adequate. This power supply would be able to power your system while allow you to expand in the future and it is well built.

I took your advice and did a few modifications on my old build.

This is my completed build below, will this build work? or is there anything i need to modify? Again, Thank you in advance!

For monitors, I would go for an IPS one, such as the ASUS PA248Q Black 24.1" or ASUS MX279H Silver / Black 27".  The only other thing you need to be aware of with this system is that, if you plan on using SLI or Crossfire, your chosen power supply will be insufficient.  Also, in a multi-GPU setup with high-end cards, your motherboard will not support full PCI-Express X16 speeds on two or more slots.

The PSU will work with the motherboard  and GPU.
