IF you buy a MOBO with integrated LAN support you won't need to buy a Network Adapter. Make sure that your integrated LAN on the MOBO is 10/100/1000.

Good Luck!

stock HS is fine unless ur ocing, which u dont need to.
HD, get a 80 or 160 gb sata (i recommend seagate, they are silent as hell)
PSU, u can get anything between 420 and up. If ur gona oc, u need strong rails, but dont worry about that.

OCZ, thermaltake, and other brands make good psus

modem, mobo should have integrated
