Also, If i want to use headphones is a sound card required? If so can you add a cheap one to the build?

Yup, you're good... Just note that an i5 is still better at strictly gaming

That will run any game @ 1080p and most @ 1440p with out a hickup. A sound card really isn't necessary IMO, as anything reasonably priced isn't going to be worth the upgrade over onboard audio.
