Default Building new PC//700-800 Budget

Hey guys, I'm gonna attempt to build a computer for the first time and am a bit clueless as too what too get/is good value etc. Been researching on internet and have found some parts which I think are good value but just need some help on completing the whole package. PC is mainly going to be used for gaming as I download alot of games(Just downloaded devil may cry 4 for example) so want something which can last awhile. Got a 22 inch monitor also.

This pc is going to be built from scratch so need DVD drives etc.

This is what I've gotten too so far.

Force3D HD 4870 512MB DDR5 Dual DVI HDTV Out PCI-E Graphics Card - Ebuyer

Coolermaster CM690 Dominator Black Mid Tower Case - No PSU - Ebuyer

Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Socket 775 (3.0GHz) 1333FSB 6MB L2 Cache Retail Boxed Processor - Ebuyer

OCZ 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 800Mhz/PC2-6400 Memory GOLD DUAL CHANNEL Unbuffered CL5(5-5-5-18) - Ebuyer

Arctic Power 700W PSU - With PCI-E, 4x SATA, 20+4, ATX12V, 8pin +12V Connectors - Retail Boxed - Ebuyer

Need help on motherboard as too which will fit the processor and be good if I want to upgrade in the future. Other advice on cooling fans etc would be really appreciated as I really dont have a clue and I want 500GB on hardrives but don't know if I should get 2, e.g. use a 10000 rpm and have another for storage.
