Question Planning my first build :)

Okay, i think I've gained enough experience to finally build my first computer. I've always worked on computers, but i never had the chance to actually build the whole thing. so here goes, my plan for my new computer ground up.

since I'm tight on money, I'm going to have to slowly build it as i can afford each part. in order of most important to least important:
Case: $50 Sorry, ebay link. its an atx case with a window and blue led's.
Mobo: $100 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130082
CPU: $70 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819112214
RAM: $150
HD: $100 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148246
GPU: $100 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814141054
Drives: $90 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827106073

Cooling: $80 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835106080
Monitor: $200
Speakers: $60
KB Mouse:
