New PC Build - Advice/Verification?

As the subject line indicates, I am hoping to receive some validation on the component list I created at I haven't built a PC in 7 years, and things have changed quite a bit.

I'm gearing towards a gaming PC, as might be obvious based on the configuration I put together. Any advice on additional items I might need that is not on the list would be appreciated. For example, will all the required cabling come with the components? Is there anything I left out (minus the monitor, which I already have)?

Any reason you selected SODIMM RAM for a desktop?? It won't work, get some regular RAM.

Also, you sure you want beige drives?? I know the case has a door, but it's still gonna be ugly.

And yes, all cables are included there.

Also, when looking for a black DVD-RW drive, look at the NuTech DDW-082, excellent overall performance (the best right now, for only $15 more than your current one).

Maxtor disgraces the six letters that make Matrox.
