You are getting a body, lens, and memory card. Start from there and see what your needs are as they come up. If you are missing something it will become fairly obvious as you go.
I guess that would work.
Yeah, Ill get a bag, I forgot to add that.

Here's the accessories I started gathering after my 40D purchase, up do my 5D MkII (all of them will come in handy sooner or later for you, and most I'd consider a necessity):
Oh, and this can be a very expensive.. but rewarding! hobby...
-Several Memory Cards
-Good bag(s) depending on your needs
-Dust/rocket blower thingy
-Nikon Lens Pen (I LOVE this)
That's the basic stuff I always carry around with me when I"m shooting, besides maybe tripod.
Over time Ill get most of those things, Im just wondering what to get at first.

What would you like to photograph? The answer will dictate what accessories to buy.
If you want to photograph children, you might want a different lens and a flash. If you want to photograph birds, a telephoto or long zoom lens. Flowers, a macro lens.
Tell us what you like to shoot, or better yet, show is what you have shot in the past.
I mostly would like to do nature stuff, but I could see myself photographing everything.

how serious do you plan on getting into this hobby? if you think that this could consume you, then you might as well save up for the best accessories (rather than buying cheap ones and having to sell them when you upgrade)!
Im dying to start photography, I kinda want to make it a career even. But for now I just want to learn and get better.
So now heres the main things to get at first
