Hello, most of the parts you listed are great!

You could get this Samsung spinpoint 1tb for less

Solid build, the only change id make would be as suggested above, grab a 1TB SpinPoint F3 for about $60.

The Antec PSU you listed as well is currently on sale at NewEgg for $70 :) 

Might be worth picking up 8GB of ram as well (2x4GB sticks) 1600MHz CL9 if you can squeeze it into your budget.

I planned on installing a Linux distro, but I do need a DVD drive but I'm not too worried as to which to pick.
