Also should i get windows 7 HP or windows 8? which is better and will it interfere with any games?

Thanks in advance :D

Both are about the same OS operating wise, its just the user interface that is different. Windows 8.1 works better in most games. Other than that, the build looks great. Nothing I would change.

You could change the 840pro for a 840evo and save 40$... Great system anyway!

I personally use the 840 Pro because of its slightly faster speed, but I've heard mainly good reviews on the 840 EVO. Check this comparison: http://ssdboss.com/ssds/Samsung-840-Pro-vs-Samsung-840-...

Unless you have high end speakers and/or very expensive/good performance headphones, the onboard sound will do just fine. If you are audio recording/editing or others, I recommend the Creative Labs Z.

The asrock extreme4 uses the realtec alc 1150 onboard sound, which is actually quite good and can power even higher ohm headphones/headsets.
A dedicated soundcard is usually not necessary for gaming headsets, but they are often louder and have less noise (pretty much only important if youyou hear music with headphones/good speakers)
If you get a good headset like the astros you could first use the onboard sound and if its too noisy/sounds bad you could look for a soundcard/DAC
