I7 build any little extras I might need?

I'm going to build a new i7 computer with a i7 950, p6x58d-e mother board , antec nine hundred-two case, seasonic x650 PSU, 6 GB of corsair memory, and a GTX 580. I added some arctic silver thermal paste and windows 7. I will be reusing the hard drives from my old computer. This is my first computer build, so idk if there is anything I have overlooked that I might need to put the computer together. Help would be appreciated.

    Thanks for responding . Sorry. Yeah I ordered a DVD burner. I'm going to have to wait to get a cooler. I know That will make it more difficult to install. I didn't know If some of the PSU cables would be too short? I guess I will have to try it out and see.

    I wouldn't expect anything to be too short in a 902. It's usually only a concern in the larger cases (HAF 932, Antec 1200, etc.).
