Great guide, thank you.
One thing I missed a bit was a discussion of the Followers. Yesterday I was totally ripped apart in my first visit to A2 with the scoundrel (main problem was low resists though), then with Enchantress (and a few cheap AH items) I was able to clear to Magda without major problems.
I assume that for a well geared Monk (high crit damage), the 3% crit buff from the scoundrel is the best DPS option. However the 3% IAS and armor buff of the enchantress might be more helpful when survivability is still an issue. I never tried the templar.
One other "beginner" hint:
After reading a similar suggestion elsewhere, yesterday I swapped my 750 dps + crit damage + socket weapon (no other stats) for a 560 dps + 260 dex + 160 vit weapon. Now, my dps didn't change from that move (and I assume crit scales better eventually), but my life went up by 5000 and armor and dodge both increased, leading to a big survival boost.
Now, the main reason I am pointing this out is that the 560dps + stats weapon cost me a total of 4500 gold, while high dps weapons with at least some useful stats are much more expensive. Also having that huge amount of vit and dex on the weapon allowed me to drop those stats on some other items and boost my resistances, again for very little gold.
Which act are you talking about? Your armor might be slightly on the low side, other than that I think your stats should be well above what is required for A1 and at least sufficient to play through A2. Most of my stats are lower (my gear is at most worth 1m I guess), but I kill most elites without dying, just with a lot of running and cooldowns.

See screenshot below. This is the first really nice inferno drop that I got, and I'm not looking to sell it, but I would like to get a rough idea about the value.Posted in: US Servers Trading
In case something goes wrong with the screenshot, here are the stats:
1.55 Attacks per Second
+206-427 Poison Damage
Increases Attack Speed by 11%
Each Hit Adds +905 Life
