If you're new to Mac, you get get most of those at http://www.versiontracker.com
What you "must have" depends on what you "must do" though, really... Probably different for everyone.

If you have a need to take screenshots at all then you HAVE to get skitch (http://www.skitch.com). That along with Evernote (http://www.evernote.com/) are two of the applications I use the most.
If you Twitter then Twitterific is a really good client (http://iconfactory.com/software/twitterrific/).
For power users there's Quicksilver (Wiki entry at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quicksilver_(software)) which is an application launcher which is really nice and powerful.
