Default How to build a computer?

Hi! I'm trying to build a PC from scratch: I have these already:
1) Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 Yorkfield 2.83GHz 12MB L2 Cache LGA 775 95W Quad-Core Processor - Retail - does have a heat sink and a fan as well.
2) OCZ StealthXStream OCZ600SXS 600W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready Active PFC Power Supply - Retail

I'm planning on getting these:
1) ASUS P5Q-EM LGA 775 Intel G45 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
2) G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK - Retail
3) Western Digital Caviar Black WD5001AALS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - OEM
4) ASUS EN9600GSO/DI/512MD3/V2 GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

... I was wondering as to what else I need.. I know I need a cd/dvd burner and a case tower... Is there anything esle? Also tell me ur opinions/views of my new rig.

Thanks in advance!
