Building New System Need Help

Hi everyone, it will be my first time to build a system from scratch. And to be honest i have no idea what im doing. Anyway im planning to buy a CPU, motherboard and a graphic card in 1 month. (750 $ max.) After these i will buy the rest of the system. I will use the pc for gaming and i wont do any overclocking

So i made a research and came out with these whats your opinion ?

processor

motherboard

graphic card

Will these parts work fine together ? And please feel free to give advice about the rest of the parts to complete the system and i will buy them asap.

One last question which is very silly: i noticed no one mentions about sound cards. Does that mean i simply dont have to buy a sound card to get a sound ? Sorry for that question but as i said i have absolutely no knowledge about computers :)

    Replaced the old gtx 670 for a stronger VGA ( hd7970ghz edition, which performance is on par with a GTX680 ) that's also bundled with some games for free.

    Motherboards have integrated sound controller, so you don't need a discrete sound card :) You'll still need a speaker of a headphone for sound, of course.

    i couldn`t find the brand name for that 8gb ram. is it a good one ? and would you suggest any extra rams or 8gb is fine ?
  5. This kit, if I'm not mistaken : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148661 . And 8gb is more than enough for most people.
