Default Is this all compatible?

I have built a computer virtually on newegg.com and plan on purchasing ASAP once I believe 100% that everything is compatible. I am pretty sure it all works, but nothing wrong with getting an expert opinion or two. Here's the link and Thanks You to anyone who helps!

http://secure.newegg.com/NewVersion/...?BundleExist=N

To make it easier I have manually typed out the list:

Case/PSU/Cooling:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133157

Media Drive CD/DVD:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827131410

(also is this at least CD 48x and DVD 16x?)

Hard Drive:

RAM:

LCD monitor:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824009027

XP Operating System:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16837102151

Video Card:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130214

Processor:

http://www.newegg.com/product/Produc...82E16819103535

Motherboard:

http://www.newegg.com/product/Produc...82E16813136152

I already have a mouse and speaker system and obviously the keyboard is easy to hook up. So my remaining questions are:

-Is there any other hardware I need?
-I have read the the motherboard has issues connecting to the power source as this motherboard uses 24 pins. I have found an adapter in which that I think works but I want someone to double check it for me

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16812101121

- I figured out how to ground myself using the (using the cables linked to below). Must I use two grounding cables, one for each hand so I can use each hand when building? Or can I just use one grounding cable on one hand and still use both hands to build the computer?

And would these work for cable ties to hold the wires together neatly inside

You have everything you need, your setup looks good, comcast can be connected through the ethernet, the power supply if im not mistaken does need a 24 pin adapter, I dont know if it comes with it though, since the power supply comes with the case it doesnt show the specifics. Its a nice case, I have one similar to it, but what i would get just the case and get an antec neo power 480W. Very good power supply and you only plug in the cables you need to making the case less cluttered = better air flow, and people looking in your case window wont have to look at a mess of wires

Thanks! Also do I need those little plastic things to hold the wires together? I heard they help and all but have no idea where to buy them.

EDIT: I also bought a 20 pin to 24 pin converter just in case of the scenerio I listed above - it was only $8 altogether so it's worth it and not worth the hassle.

PSU is insufficient for that mobo. Need at least 480W/native 24 pins

Like I've said in other threads, just make sure that ATX fits with ATX and socket 939 fits in socket 939 (just examples). You'll be fine if you look before you buy.
