Default Give this a once over?

Hey there, im very new to all this computer building stuff and so would like some help with this list ive made. So if someone could just give it a look over and let me know if A) it all works together and utilizing every bit and B) if there is an alternative version you would recommend. Cause all this is costing around £850, so i wouldn't mind reducing the price. Thanks for any help you can provide me with. P.S which operating system should I use, someone said to get vista but i heard it was very power hungry!

Here it goes:

CASE:
CPU
Motherboard
RAM
Video card: Im unsure as to whether i can utilize this one.
CPU Cooler:
HDD:
DVD:
PSU:
Monitor:
Keyboard and mouse:

im stuck trying to find a decent case that both looks good and houses everything. The antec 900 only has 3 internal 5.25" drive bays even though it looks awesome and has plenty of fans. Could you suggest a favorite of yours?

i think the Antec 900 and NZXT Tempest are the best mid-towers.
