Computer Build for Gaming and Programming

I'm a noob to computer build this is my first time and I want a pretty decent PC for gaming and programming I'm planning on getting this Case for the PC, 
NZXT Phantom Full Tower Chassis ATX Case White 
I got this from Frys, but I only have Frys as my Computer store. I checked the whole thing out but what I'm afraid of is that when I buy the other parts for the Computer build it won't go withe the OS, I've looked at what I'm building I will all the things I will be using. This is difficult for me because I'm the only person that knows alot about computers at my house.

Case: NZXT Phantom Full Tower Chassis ATX Case White

MotherBoard: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5 AMD 990FX AM3+ Motherboard

Hardrives will be bought later which internal hardrive do I need now and Moniter

The power supply I don't how many Watts I need to power the thing

And I want it to run on Windows or Linux OS but I'd prefer Windows and is there anything wrong or missing in the computer build by that I just mean what will be going inside the Case.
