um did you get your parts yet?
A Sturdy motherboard is recommended, plus you can go quad-core in the future.
Your going to need a CPU cooler for that CPU
Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 PRO PWM - Aria Technology
Video card:
Get 8800GTS 512mb version, cheaper and performs the same as the 8800GTX. Don't get the 8800GTS 320 or the 640 videocard, they are older cards that won't perform as good.
