Default building a comp

hi again. I was reading all the replies to my post and baronvongogo suggested that i build my own comp. Well i have been thinking about it for awhile now and I thought i would do some research on it, see how much it would run me, and so that brings me to my question, so i was reading elbatrop's sticky on building your own comp and he gave a checklist on comp parts, i was wondering if you guys think there was anything more that should be added to it? if not, i will use it as my starting guide to my research.
