Default First time Computer build

Here is what I have so far. I have $800 dollars to spend and will probably run *nix so no need to pay for OS. Also, it will primarily be used for learning programming maybe some electrical engineering applications. Any advice is appreciated.

Kingston 4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1066 (P

Also, these parts are not set in stone so if you think of a better one in the same price range let me know. Also, is there anything else I need? I am a noob so all help appreciated.

List your parts as links from the store your planning on shopping at.
