SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, surfing, watching movies, desktop publishing

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor (initially going to use it on a 32"HDTV but may get a monitor further down the line), Speakers

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS:, although I am open to suggestions if there are cheaper sites

PARTS PREFERENCES: None - open to any brands

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe - Have never overclocked before, but I'm open to new experiences

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe - in the future as an upgrade route

MONITOR RESOLUTION: I believe the maximum of my HDTV is 1366 x 768 but would assume any future monitor would exceed that.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I built my own PC back in 1999, but am quite out of touch currently, so the below build comes entirely from what I have read, mainly on this site.

AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition 3.2 GHz Socket AM3 8MB Cache Retail Boxed Processor

Gigabyte GA-MA790FXT-UD5P 790FX Socket AM3 DDR3 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard

Kingston 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz HyperX Memory Kit CL7 1.5V

XIGMATEK HDT S1283 Socket 775 AM2 754 939 940 Heatpipe CPU Cooler

Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound Thermal paste 3.5gram

Samsung SH-S223F 22X DVD?RW/RAM/DL Serial ATA Black Bare Drive - OEM

Would I need any additional cables? Or indeed anything else? It works out at about £825 as is. Any help is greatly appreciated.
