Default Building my computer help

Alright, I hope this is the right place. I've never built a computer before. I just want to make sure everything fits into place. These are the parts I plan on buying (im just copying+pasting this straight from the titles):

SONY 16X DVD±R DVD Burner With 5X DVD-RAM Write Black IDE LG CD Burner Black E-IDE / ATAPI Model GCE-8527B BLK - OEM
APEVIA (ASPIRE) MX-PLEASURE-BK Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case ATX 500W dual fan w/ automatic fan speed control. Connector 20 + 4 pin Power Supply - Retail
NEC Black 1.44MB 3.5" Internal Floppy Drive - OEM
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3320620AS (Perpendicular Recording Technology) 320GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - Retail
Hanns·G HW-191DPB Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor - Retail
eVGA 768-P2-N831-AR GeForce 8800GTX 768MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card - Retail
Logitech G15 2-Tone USB Wired Standard Keyboard - Retail
Logitech G5 Laser 931376-0403 2-Tone 6 Buttons 1x Wheel USB Laser Mouse - Retail
Patriot 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model PDC22G5300LLK - Retail
ASUS P5W DH DELUXE/WIFI-AP Socket T (LGA 775) Intel 975X ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz LGA 775 Processor
APEVIA (ASPIRE) CF12SL-UBL 120mm Blue Case Fan - Retail

Now, what I want to know, is:

Is this everything I'm going to need? (I think I still need an ethernet card). The processor comes with its own fan, the PSU supplied is 500w, the Graphics card comes with its own fan too. If I need to show any more info, tell me.
Does anyone see any impending clashes ahead?
What compatibility issues do I need to check? I've checked a lot, but if someone could list out most things, it'd be a great help.
And any general problems or advice with the build would be appreciated.

Thanks a lot, and I again hope this is the right place for this.
