Good Starter Items for Mtn Bikes

I'm soon to get this bike.

I know a helmet is obvious, but what other things would be good to have at all times on the trail?

I'm also looking at:
Gloves (Not sure what one)
A mount for my GPS
I have a golite backpack that I think will accept a bladder.

I guess I need tools and an air pump.
What would you recommend? Is there a good starter kit.
Since the bike is $570 I would like to spend less than $200 for accessories.

Thanks for the help!
