Two things - consider getting the case at a local computer store or something.  Shipping is $16 from newegg, a local computer store may only charge $50-60 for the case + tax.  Saving a couple of dollars.

While you mentioned you're trying to keep the cost under $700, why not consider a dual format DVD burner - they are going for as little as $75.  You're already spending $38 on a CD/DVD combo... it's not that much more.

Otherwise, looks good to me.

Check out this site:

http://www.anandtech.com/guides/showdoc.aspx?i=2231

Anandtech puts out monthly guides for building various types of systems (entry level, mid level, hardcore gamer, etc).  This is their entry level guide.

Just something to consider.
