that build is very expensive
so we have to know first, what is the PC for?

we could probably end up suggesting haswell build instead of 2011 platform

Beautiful!! You will love it I am sure.

Just one question to confirm. You have an incredible sound system that requires a dedicated sound card? Most people are satisfied with the onboard sound of a motherboard. Unless you have dropped some big money on speakers and need a dedicated sound card, you can drop the Xonar and save some money.

Save some money. Pffft. That's not what this build is about, what am I saying. Keep the Xonar!

Personally I would go with a Haswell socket 1150 setup instead. You could save a lot of money and still get great performance. But it is not my money going into it so that is your choose.

the specs are good and it will perform well for your intended purpose. Are you after something better or something cheaper. 'Stuff you don't need' is kind of subjective as you could pretty much change any item, but it will have some performance penalty/improvement for your intended purpose. No item is pointless, but not absolutely necessary either.
