Thank you for the suggestions Proximon! I researched hard drives and cases on the site and your suggestions were great. I am going with the Antec P180, it looks to be nearly silent during operation. The hard drive you suggested was out of stock so I am ordering a Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB SATA hard drive instead. The motherboard you suggested looks great. I have had bad experience with G.skill but thanks for the link. I actually found some Kingston ram that was cheaper, more around $200 instead of $230.
My New Total: $831.88
This includes the SATA cable since the hard drive is OEM and an upgraded CPU fan.
WD Black is a performance drive, WD green is a power saving lower performing drive. I am not sure if the lesser drive performance will affect your application or not. If you want a performance drive the Samsung F3 is quick and inexpensive.
