Default A computer noob in dire need of suggestions to current build! :/ DIRE

I'm building a new PC for gaming and so far this is my build:

Athlon 64 3500+

1GB RAM

Sapphire X700 256MB Video Card

80 GB HardDrive

52x CD-RW/DVD-ROM

3.5" Floppy

Windows XP Home

I am Horrid with computers and dont even know what parts I am missing from this build. If anyone could help me out and tell what is missing and tell me a good moderately priced one of whatever it is. I'm pretty sure I'm missing a mother board and sound card. I really need to figure out a final, final build soon to prepare to buy this. Please help me out with a final build if you have the time. I'm trying not to go over 1200, so far Im told this is about and 800-900 dollar system I am getting speakers, moniter, mouse and keyboard seprate.

Thanks so much for your suggestions!

Will the ASUS A8N-SLI Premium ATX AMD Motherboard work well?

Yeah, that's a good board, as far as I hear.

Yes. It's got onboard sound so you don't need to get a sound card. You also need a case, I recommend this one. It's got the power supply, too, so you don't have to get one. It houses my rig, and it's got buttons on the side; you unscrew two hand screws and push the buttons and the side of the case comes off for easy access.
