Default First PC Build Any advice?

DVD drive
Power supply and case
Hard Drive
Motherboard
Ram
Processor

*I have a 9800gt for a graphics card. Nothing special but i have it for free and want to use it until I can obtain a better card.
*I already have a monitor keyboard and mouse
Any advice or revisions I should make to my build? I would like to try to keep the price at or below where it is now. Thanks you very much.

Thanks for the advice.

Is there any way to get the parts listed above for cheaper? The shipping is quite high and it really adds to the overall cost.

i have to agree with trotter on the case. i just used the antec 200 case and it was built nice. for the 300 you will need to buy the front two fans. i recommend the three speed fans
Newegg.com - Antec 761345-75121-6 120mm Case Fan - Case Fans

if you not in a hurry check the free shipping section each week.

Newegg.com - Free Shipping

I'm not a fan of either case, but do not get the first one. The PSU is garbage.

Same case as #2 on NewEgg, $5 cheaper and free shipping.
Newegg.com - RAIDMAX Tornado ATX-238WR Black / Red SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

Here's another choice, same price as #2, all black w/free shipping:
Newegg.com - RAIDMAX Hurricane ATX-248WB Black SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

A word of advice, but not about your build. All new members are moderated here. That's why your posts didn't immediately show up. You should be over the hump now, but if you are not DO NOT MAKE MULTIPLE POSTS OF THE SAME THING! I am beyond tired of having to clean the mess up.
