By brands, I recommend Western Digital or Seagate.

Here's a Western Digital 250GB. Plenty of storage, good price, and a 5-year warranty: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136010

As for CD-ROMs, I highly suggest getting a DVD burner. Here's one I know is good from personal experience, but I don't know of any bad ones either: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827152058

As for the case, look around on Newegg or another hardware site and find some cases you like. Then post them here and we can review them for you. Everyone's case tastes are different, so it's hard to recommend cases.

Thermaltake SOPRANO VB1000BWS Black Steel/Plastic ATX Mid Tower
or
Sunbeam Transformer IC-TR-US-BL Blue Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case 450W Power Supply
does having more 80mm fans really mean anything? also do all power supplies fit into the cases?

well i have a soprano and i like the case. nice screw free installation of pci/pci-e cards and drives.

i like Western Digital hard drives and lite-on/sony/LG/plextor optical drives. i mainly like lite-on because they are reasonably cheap and decent quality.

I really like the Soprano more out of those two. ThermalTake has some high quality and good looking cases. It has adequate cooling. Just note that it doesn't come with a PSU (which is a good thing; most PSU's that come in cases are horrible).
