DPS around 1000 for me... Look for bargains in the AH, use your current weapon stats as a search parameter that way you are garanteed to updgrade! I found both my weapons with +100 dex on one and +100VIT on the other socketed rares for 5000 and 8000 a piece! Than buy a Square or even Flawless square ruby from the AH, socket and enjoy!!
Monks aren't generally power houses like Demon Hunters or Wizards but I'm level 44 I think and my damage is around 1.5k.
Yes. If you are more towards survivability, using a shield helps greatly with that. It can also still provide damage bonuses if it gives dexterity, and on that note, you can slot shields with +30 dex gems which will help a lot.
Since dex is your main stat anyways, using the passive Seize the Initiative will increase your armor making you more tanky so adding a shield just compliments your armor amount more.
Generally in Hell/Inferno most monks use shields anyways.

Lol you are playing normal. once you are in inferno you will be in a new world... a world of defensive skills and mantra spamming haha
level 41 1600 dps.
get +dmg rings and amulets,
get socketed high dps weapons, put the biggest ruby you can get in them (ruby adds base damage)
aim for stacking dexterity in every other socket, (helm is up to you)
get extra attack speed whenever you can.
so far I've found dual wielding fast weapons with rubies in them works out for higher dps.
