Get a decent SD card. Buy the cam with kit lens(es). Don't go overboard with tons of accessories until you start to get familiar with the world of photography. UV filters might be a good idea. A camera bag. Not too small and not too big. That should pretty much be it.

Oh, batteries. The K-x rock with Lithium batteries.

I bought my fist dSLR (K-x) about 8 months ago. I recently considered upgrading to the K-5 but realized The K-x still does the job for me pretty well. I shoot all kinds of stuff.

Once you buy it, for a headache free experience:

1. Buy some Sanyo Eneloops batteries.
2. Buy some Sandisk cards.
3. Update the firmware on your camera to the latest version.
4. Keep reading Pentax forums.
5. Enjoy.
