i am planning to build my own pc and seen some videos on youtube about it.

Well i am almost ready but left with some questions.

1.Do I get the data cables(sata and other) with the devices i buy(cd drive, hard drive etc.

2.for building i know that i need a screw driver kit and screws(screws come with case, i think.)

OK i am going to buy the following rig.

Intel i7 860
asus maximus iii formula
g,skill triend 2gb ddr3 1600
gts 250 1gb
antec 900
3 hdds of total 3 tb or 1 tb(not yet decided.)
corsair vx600watts
zalman cnps10x performa

Do i need anythind more except screw driver kit.

thanks in advance

1. Yes. You will get the needed pair of cables with that setup. Id rather say you will get some extra ones aswell.

2. You dont NEED anything else but an antistatic wristwrap would be recommended. It keeps the AS from damaging your components while ur working with them.
(Im not sure how the Zalman is attached but a smaller screwdriver may be needed)

PS: Id replace that graphics with a ATI chip 5xxx. But thats my opinion :) 

Good Luck!

Yes all the cables you need come with the motherboard not the devices.

Yes a screwdriver is about the only tool you need and alot of new cases are for the most part tooless you usually will only need the screwdriver to fasten the motherboard. All the screws and standoffs that you need will come with the case also.

All your parts look good but I would go with a different GPU I would go with an HD 5770. Now if your budget is capping you off at the GTS 250 then you might want to rethink your CPU choice and maybe go with an I5 750 and get a better GPU.

Thats just my thoughts Good Luck on your new rig.

I agree with all, the gts 250 is old hat. It would be best if you get the ATI HD 5770.
Saaiello is right, if you intend to use this pc primarily for gaming, then the 750 will serve you just as well, instead of the 860. That will save you US $100
Another suggestion is that instead of the Maximus, get the P7P55D E Pro. It will overclock well, also has SATA 6 & USB3. This saves you a further $40.
Now if you combine your cpu+motherboard savings, you could even get the Radeon HD 5850.

[1] You don't need any more cables, unless you're planning on adding more than 4 HDDs.

[2] ATI 5xxx series consists of 8 cards, out of which the 5750 comes close to gts 250's price, & performs at par. You could drop in an additional $20-30 & get the 5770 which definitely outperforms both of them.

I suggest you ask some well known computer retailer in your town/city if he's got that card. Or you could buy it online:
techshop.in
theitwares.com
