Hello. I am totally new to this so I wanted to confirm a couple of things before I hit the Confirm button over at NewEgg. This is what I'm getting based on the first post of this thread...

Will I need any extra cables or connections to build this?
Also, I've never built a PC before so how difficult will I find this project? Is it do-able for the basic user?
It's $566.92 ($592.55 after tax), so is there another pre-built option I should consider or is this the best I can get for the money? I wanted to spend about $500 but I can swing the $600.
Thanks for any answers!
EDIT: BTW, all I really need it to do is playback 1080p with no problems. I want to start ripping my BDs to MKV with lossless FLAC audio. As long as it can handle this with no problems, I'm good.
