You don't need the extra LAN card and make sure you get a quality case and power supply. A quality mATX case would be something like the BitFenix Prodigy. The CX 430 is decent, the Antec Earthwatts E380 or the Seasonic S12 430W would be better.

and G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-16GXM for memory.

i just added the second lan interface so the hyper-v replica would have a dedicated nic... but i do realize its not crucial

Yeah it's definitely not crucial. Where I work only the really old systems are the ones that have dedicated NICs, the newer ones run off the motherboard.
