What will the rig be used for? Gaming, 3D, just browsing, etc.?

And by everything I assume you need a monitor? What about keyboard+mouse?

If you're going to be overclocking, get a good aftermarket heatsink. If not, stick with stock cooling.

Overclocking, in simplest and slightly inaccurate terms, is putting more electricity through the processor to make it go faster.
Since you don't know anything about it I wouldn't suggest you do so; stick with stock cooling.
