You put the RAM twice and no CPU..

That board isn't very good.. this on the other hand is an unknown gem, cheap and very very good:

Newegg.com - JetWay JHA06-GT-LF AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards

I'd change the 9800GT to an HD 4850, which can be had for around the same price and is tons better

Newegg.com - Rosewill RG430-2 430W 80Plus Certified,ATX12V v2.3/EPS12V v2.91, Active-PFC Power Supply, UL,FCC,CE,TUV,ROHS - Power Supplies

Also get that PSU, I use that one, and its better than what you have currently (wattage doesn't matter)

this is a good 4850, and its cheaper and way better than that 9800GT (why is it so pricey?)

Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100245L Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

and get this hdd instead

Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Green WD5000AADS 500GB 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives

yep, build looks good.

all the cd/dvd burners that are reasonably priced are out of stock at newegg.

the only other drives there are the regular ones that dont burn dvd's. or you could go to your local electronics store to see if they have any there.

as for the cpu, you had said that you dont plan on OCing so the stock heatsink and fan will work. if you feel that you still need one though, go with something like this one

Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-CCTF92-4 92mm Core-Contact Freezer CPU Cooler W/TX-2 - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

you can combo the board and CPU:
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

Also, I'd go for a Corsair PSU:
Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-400CX 400W ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS Certified Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies
Corsair make very high quality PSU's

How much do you have to spend anyway?
If you can afford it, I'd go with a Phenom II 940:
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!
