That looks like everything. It depends on what you mean by modem card, do you mean a dial-up modem? If you do, this will be an extra you need to add to the list. If you mean an ethernet connection (like to connect to a router), they come on the motherboard. What you can do is select the parts you like and post them, along with a link, and outline your budget and what you want to use the computer for (gaming, video editing, office, whatever...).

Then we'll check all your parts for compatibility!

Cheers :whistling:

Unless you plan on a 6.1 or 7.1 sound system a sound card probably wont be nescessary.

CPU fans generally come with either the CPU or the heatsink.

Then you got OEM.
As long as you get the retail version it comes with everything, generally a better warranty, the manual, installation disc, in the case of a harddrive you'd get cables (you don't with OEM hard drives) and the really nice box that we all need :whistling:
