swap the ram for some low profile ram so you dont lose any of the slots to the cooler.
the mb should have two sata cables in the box. the only cable that might be needed is an extender cable for the 4/8 pin pci power cable.

You shouldn't need any additional cables unless you plan to add more peripherals - in that case, just buy some SATA cables. They're cheap.

You don't have a hard drive listed. Do you have one already or is this something you've overlooked? Same story for a DVD drive and OS.

If you have the money I'd recommend stepping up to the 7970. You'll likely hit your FPS targets with a 7950, but your system will last longer with a higher model GPU.
