So far it looks like you have chosen:

1X - 16CH Ultimate Mini DVR
0X - No Hard Drive
10X - OB-EL700IR100L2812
1X - 16CH Power Box
1X - 500ft Box Siamese Cable
1X - 100 Piece BNC-COMP100
1X - Compression tool

Did you select no hard drive on purpose? If so, make sure you are using a SATA II or III hard drive that is NOT a green drive. Preferably one that spins at 7200rpm.
You will not need the EX Lockbox for this dvr, you can use the LOCKBOX-LX which is built for the mini DVR's while the EX is for the Larger Full size Units.
You may want 2 boxes of siamese cable, we usually sell 100ft cable per camera and since you are purchasing 10 cameras total, I would suggest going with at least two boxes.
You will not need 100 compression fittings, you can order them individually and will need one for each end. So 20 total will be fine.
If you are using Siamese Cable you will need Power leads for the camera end which will be one female PT-3 for each camera. So you will need to add 10X PT-3 Female Power Leads to the order as well and that would be everything that I can think of which you will need to get started.

Lastly, I do not understand which items you have added to the end. I believe you may have listed the wrong item numbers.

I have a couple green hdd's in my dvr and they seem to work fine. Should I start thinking about replacing them with non green hdd's ? I don't want any problems in the future.
