    That Board/CPU/Ram should all work fine together. I assume you already have a hard drive and a copy of the OS you plan to install. Also make sure your case has a power supply (high-end ones typically come without them). Since you're getting a retail boxed CPU, it will include the required fan and heatsink. Other than that, you should be good to go.

    Edit: I almost forgot, Ground Yourself while handling the CPU, board, etc!
    Hopefully you already knew that, but I've seen numerous component failures due to static damage. Good luck!

    Yes indeed. Cables should be included with the hardware. ASUS is a good choice of boards. Should be a good, stable system.
