Are the items in this bundles all compatible?

If I am asking too much of you, please just move along now. I understand some people couldn't be bothered to help me, but I'm looking for the ones that can.

Buying a new PC. I'd like to order it tomorrow. I was pretty set on ordering this bundle: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.1418794

The thing is, I'm not exactly ignorant when it comes to computers, but I'm much more of a software kind of guy and not so much a hardware one. I know where a CPU goes, and the RAM, and what a heatsink is, and yadda yadda. But to give you an idea of how outdated I am, the computer I'm using now is from, like, 2004, and doesn't even have PCI-e slots.

I'd really, really appreciate it if someone here could take a look at the items in the bundle and just make sure everything check's out. Like, I know everything will fit together and such, I checked all of that. But stuff like... will I need more SATA cables? Will the provided PSU be enough? I don't know, stuff like that.

I'm really nervous about purchasing a bundle like this, but it seems like a great deal and it's right in my budget.

if they don't provide sata cables to connect your HDD and DVD, that's just stupid so i'm going to say no unless you need to connect your own devices.

as for psu it's strong enough but i don't know of the quality and am too lazy to look up a review... worst case scenario you just order a better quality psu from newegg instead.

Rosewill isn't generally known for good quality power supplies so that's something that I would worry about.
