    you need a:
    motherboard (M/B)
    memory (RAM)
    graphics card (VGA)
    monitor (either CRT or LCD)
    proccessor (CPU)
    heat sink and fan (H/S)
    case with Power Supply Unit (PSU)
    hard disk drive (HDD)

    usual optional extras:
    cd/dvd drive (sometimes refered to as: optical drive)
    speakers
    sound card
    floppy drive (FDD)

    basically if it fits then its probably ment to be
    and you get all screws the and stuff with the M/B usually, there are many different options/opinions as to which item on the abov list is best, but it's down to the individual, any questions, just ask.
