You can buy the latest i5 4670K processor for the same price and a socket 1150 board to match it .

Not really worth having a sound card fitted unless your speaker system is very good . Motherboards have excellent sound built in
The power supply might be excellent quality but its marginal for that build

Sorry I assumed you were buying from the US because your parts list was from the US site, whats your budget in pounds, PC part picker also has a UK site :)
