Get the 5870 over the 9800, get the retail (non-OEM) version of the SSD as it will come with a 2.5-3.5 bracket adapater, which you will need.

Get the Antec 900 Two case, it's better than the 900 case with built in fan knobs as well as good cable management behind the motherboard tray

Then, should I get the Cypress XT over the 5870 ?
I didn't write it up but should I stay with the 902 or should I buy the 1200 ?
