I'm looking for recommendations on stuff like Motherboards, CPU, Ram, SSD drives, Optical disk drives, Cases, etc.

Motherboards: Good idea. It's kinda difficult to wirewrap the CPU & RAM together and glue in a few support chips, so getting someone else to do it makes sense.
CPU & RAM: you are going to need them, yes.
SSD: I use SanDisk 1TB's, and have had no problems with them at all.
Optical drive: Why? Who the heck distributes via SneakerNet these days? What have you got on DVD / CD that actually matters, and should probably be archived (via ISO if necessary) or put online?
Cases: these do help the fans stay in the right place, so I say "yes, get one". Which one? Whatever has a PSU big enough to handle the CPU and graphics card.

Addons: A reasonable (but nowhere near top-of-the-range) graphics card is a good idea: teh drivers work well, and they do speed up Windows - without grabbing a big chunk out of your system RAM. Plus, they support multiple monitors, and that's worth it's weight in gold for development work!
