Battery and Charger (DSLRs do not use standard batteries). I notice the above ad shows a battery for $150 and an AC adapter for $190.
USB cable to PC or memory card reader.
Camera software for your PC if you want to use the RAW functionality.
Memory card. Not really important in this case, as they are readily available and cheap(ish). When cameras are supplied with a memory card, it is usually too small to be much use and you have to buy additional ones anyway.
Genuine manufacturer's warranty which is either international or definitely valid in your own country.

In the UK, D60 comes with a battery, mains charger, neck strap, USB cable, Photoshop Elements, Canon software, etc, etc. I heard that this was a popular scam in the States - sell the camera cheap and then charge silly prices for the essential extras - "justified" on the basis that many people already have the extras from their previous D30 (yeah, right!!!).

All of the companies selling for less than 1800usd all have HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE reviews. I have GIMP which works fairly well. How much do you think is a fair price on the 1gb. And what mode to you guys normally shoot in. JPEG, TIFF, RAW etc

A nice add on to the D60 is the extra battery hand grip. Fits two batteries and makes the camera a little nicer to hold onto, especially when you use it sideways. According to the material you should get over 1000 shots from the batteries when teamed up like this. I found it well worth the investment.

1 gig microdrives are going for about $220 on eBay. If you want compact flash, try something from Ridata. DPreview gave them a great rating, and everyone who has used them and posted in the forums seems to agree.
The D100 has a maximum write speed of about 12x, so paying for anything faster than that would be a waste of time.
