I like this list a lot.

As for the case, it has a lot to do with personal preference. Just make sure to get something with decent air flow.

Also don't forget a cpu cooler. Check out the air cooling forum and find a high end one.

DVD burner just go samsung. Good ratings and fairly cheap. Unless you are into other brands.

For the case it is all personal preference, just remember a case can last you a lifetime, so it's is a good idea to buy a case that can be reused for years to come. Get one with good airflow if you plan on overclocking.

For the OS, stick with Windows 7 Home premium OEM. You can get that for about $100. You do not really need any other editions unless you plan to use the added features. For most people Home Premium is good enough.

Earthdog has you covered for everything else.
