The parts are all compatible. I especially like your PSU choice. It's very important to have a great PSU.

You don't need a separate sound card. Additionally, the motherboard has up to 7.1 surround capability. You can use the sound from your motherboard. Is there a reason you got a separate sound card?

You also could do without the USB Card unless you're plugging in an extreme amount of USB devices?

What is this build for?

1. 2x8GB > 4x4GB.
2. You don't need the extra fan.
3. You also don't need the sound card unless you are an audiophile or have some quality speakers or headphones.

You don't need an i7 or 16GB of RAM for gaming. Invest more money in your video card. That HD isn't really a good choice either. Also a lot of money spent needlessly on useless accessories (the case fan, sound card, and USB expansion are not needed).
