Typical screen size/resolution:
18.5" = 1366 x 768
19" = 1600 x 900 and 1440 x 900
21.5 = 1920 x 1080
23 = 1920 x 1080
24 = 1920 x 1200
27 = 1920 x 1080 or 2560 x 1440
I would go for an Nvidia card with a fully-exhausting blower inside a mITX case because blower coolers tend to produce better results than dual-fan open coolers when there is not much space in your case. The 650Ti Boost 2GB or the 660 are close to an HD7850, There are very few AMD cards with blower coolers, only HIS cards and they are possibly too large for an mITX case (they are 2.5 slots wide).

Have you read the latest System Guide?
I, too, would suggest a Core i5 quad-core processor and a Radeon HD7950 graphics card if your budget can stand it.
I'm not wild about the BitFenix Prodigy mini-ITX case. It's larger than many decent micro-ATX cases and almost as large as some ATX cases. I favor micro-ATX because it has 4 PCIe slots instead of the one slot that you get with mini-ITX.
