You can get a brand new set of wheels for about $80 on-line. If you bike is a 7-speed, you will need a small spacer for your cassette. The ones you listed are....well....inexpensive. Find some with a Deore level (or better hub) and either Mavic, Sun, or Alex rims. (Wienmann are so-so for budget wheels)
I also saw some a great deal on an inexpensive low end Manitou Suspension fork at Nashbar. It was under their "returned Merchandise" section (find it on the left side of the home page). It was about $50 or $60.
The headset? Hmmm, does the new frame have an 1-1/8 headtube, or is it the 1.5" standard Cannondale one?
If the big one (size of a beer can) you'll need a special set of reducer cups available from your Cannondale dealer. (maybe eBay)!
Brakes, you can get a complete set of vee brakes LX level for $70.
Just do some shopping around, but you can definately do what you want for your budget if you're patient and shop around a bit.
