The cooler is not for a lga 1366.
Look at the Xigmatek dark knight S1283V for $40.

The 120mm fan should be quieter.

Ram is ok, but here is a slightly lower price for patriot ddr3-1600:

It works well in my system.

Ditch the sound card. Onboard HD sound is very good, and with an i7, there is little cpu savings . Some cound cards have driver compatibility issues.
You can always add one later. Use the savings elsewhere.

Do you really need a case as large as the Antec 1200?
Consider the 900-2.
