The power supply may come with the case, although it may not. If your CPU is retail, it'll include a heatsink and fan yes, and your graphics card will also have a heatsink and fan, although additional cooling is always a good idea.

and depending on your cpu...it might be a good idea to invest in some good thermal paste....any your most likely gonna need a floppy drive to....and i agree additional cooling is a good idea....it wouldnt hurt to tell us what parts you've picked out as well....
