Ok I think I finished my list of all I need to get this build going. I am a first time builder but after reading and some help on here I came up with this parts list. Are there any other things I can expect once I start loading the O.S. and starting it up for the first time?

Case: Cooler Master Storm Scout http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811119196
CPU: AMD Phenom 2 X4 945 3.0ghz http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819103696
MOBO: ASUS M4A78T-E AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813131366
PSU: Corsair 750W or 450W?? http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817139006
Memory: OCZ Obsidian 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820227495
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3500418AS 500GB 7200 RPM http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822148395
Optical: Sony http://www.newegg.co...N82E16827118030

I didnt include a gfx card because I dont really know which one to get and I dont need it right away. Also I do plan on running Flight Sim X and other games at a later date. Right now I just need a build that works well.

Hey mate, that system doesn't look too bad. You can add a graphics card later as the motherboard has onboard graphics, which will in the very least get the system up and running.

For the PSU, if you are going to be adding a graphics card as well, out of your choices the 750W will give you some headroom to allow for these upgrades.

Once you've finished the build, install your OS, then you need to install the drivers and antivirus/programs/copy your data on.
