You're going to need an optical drive, unless you have one from another pc.

Comes with a heatsink and fan, and unless you plan on overclocking the CPU, you'll be fine with the supplied parts.

If you are not going to do SLI then it would be best if you went with the P35 chipset, it's a lot better for overclocking. Also there are newer cards that are cheaper and perform better than the 8800GTS 320MB. Take a look at these:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814129101 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150275

You will definitely need a DVD drive. And I would also strongly recommend Corsair XMS2 memory over Patriot.
