Are you going to need a monitor, keyboard, and a mouse to go along with your computer or not?

No, i hav a mouse, monitor and keyboard. But i will get a new mouse probably because the one i have is old and still has mouse ball.
Here is the stuff i am thinking of getting. Any help? I can increase my budget a bit too.

Case - Thermaltake Tsunami Dreams with 500W X-Power PSU (black with window) around £128
MOBO - Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe £90
Proccessor - AMD Athlon 64 3500 Venice
RAM - Just going to get 1Gb for now, will get more in a few weeks. something like that
Graphics - ATI Sapphire X800GTO
DVD burner - Sony DW-Q30B Dual Layer
DVD drive - similar to above, but just reader, not burner
Hard Drive - Seagate ST3250823AS 250MB 7200RPM SATA/150 8MB Cache - OEM

No it isnt, you just figure out which way the processor goes in. Lay it down put just a tiny put of pressure and pull the lever down and lock it under the tab
