Default Building a Computer Checklist

HELLO!! This is my 2nd time building a computer, but my first time starting from scratch (I took parts from my old computer before). I was wondering if im missing anything vital?

Case
CPU
Motherboard
RAM
hard drive
CPU Fan
Case fan
CD Rom
DVD Rom
Floppy
Video Card
Sound Card
Speakers
Monitor
Keyboard and Mouse

Also, im looking to buy an AMD Athlon XP, but am confused of what CPU and MOTHERBOARD i should get and what CPU is compatable with what motherboard. Any advice? Thanks guys!
