Default Computer Parts-Good Choices?

I'm going to build a new computer, but I don't know if these are good choices. please tell me if anything is bad. Also, does the processor come with the thermal paste and heatsink preinstalled? Or do I have to buy some thermal paste?

Mid Tower ATX Case

Combo Drive

Monitor

Processor

everything looks ok to me. i would try to get a 7600gt though instead of the 6600gt. it gives alot more performance for a small sum of money.

The model says like 7600 gt, gs, ls, etc. What do these mean? And does the processor come with preinstalled thermal paste and heatsink?

It probably comes with a thermal pad but buy some artic silver 5 instead, its extremely cheap. Also, it should come with a fan.
