    A power supply would be good...but you have the basics covered if you plan on using onboard video and sound...
    If not then add to your list a vid card and a sound card
    Is this your first build ? ?

      Pretty much (those are the basic hardware devices you would need)  but remember these too!

      7. operating system
      8. a "good" power supply*
      9. for gaming  a must*  PCI-E  video card
      10. additional fans in case  ie..(cooling)

      I will assume you know the rest   ............. :D
      mobo- MSI P6N SLI / LCD Samsung  226BW
      Ram- G-Skill dual HQ / Speakers- 5300e's
      Fatality Hi-Fi Soundcard
      cpu - currently ~ E6600 / Foxfire only
      dual~Seagate 320 gig sata's
      8800 gts- MSI /Verizon Fios
