also man i have that case that your lookin at, it has up to seven 120mm fans slots it comes with two. u might look into buyin a few more fans in the future but you should get by with three

edit:
this Heat Sink wont fit on your motherboard or processor.
Arctic Cooling Alpine 64 AM2 S754 S939 S940 2000RPM 36CFM Heatsink Fan

look for the arctic cooling freezer pro 7, tuniq tower, or a true. but the af7 would prolly be your best bet because your new to building
Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler - Retail

your gonna need a cd drive to load drivers and other mombo jumbo so yes get a cd drive.
you might look into some crucial ballistix but reapers are good too

crucial ballistix is the best u can buy, not patriot and crucial is what i listed

im not going to agree with you there.. i think it is more application dependent... both are very good ram makers.. i just think crucial has more flexiblity for gamers

Ok I'm pretty much ready to order the parts now.

Just one last question.

Would it be a big difference if I replaced the power supply with a cheaper alternative so I can get a slight upgrade on other componants?

Let's say a Corsair 450VX
