Don't mean to be mean, but if you're not sure what all the parts are that you need to buy, are you sure you want to put together a custom? It may be better for you to get a complete so you don't have to worry about compatibility of parts and all that.

I just got a complete since I hadn't shopped for bike stuff in years and to be honest, it's changed a lot. So rather than sit here and research my brains out trying to figure out what will fit with what and balance the quality/cost aspect of the parts a couple dozen times over and having to immediately buy all the tools for building, I got one that's all put together. Now, I can, at a good pace learn more about these parts and figure out what I wanna swap out and all, but I at least have something to ride in the meantime.

But maybe I'm wrong and you're ready to take on more than I'm assuming ... DansComp.com has a checklist of all the parts you need when putting together a complete bike as well as some specific guides for putting together some trickier parts. There are also various guides on these forums, especially check the Bike Tech FAQs.
