Default Building a computer checklist

What are the basic physicall parts of a computer I would need to buy and put together just to get a new computer I'm building up and running. Of the top of my head I can think of -

1. MotherBoard
2. Processor
3. Case
4. Ram
5. Sound Card
6. Video Card
7. Power supply

What else do I need to get a computer up and running?

case is not mandatory, though it is recommended. Also the mobo usually has an integrated sound card so you don't need to buy a separate one. (unless you want better quality, but the integrated is good for normal stuff)

Don't forget an operating system.

and a keyboard, mouse, monitor, and printer perhaps if you don't already have these.
