What motherboard are you going with (didn't see it listed)? Rest of your system looks solid... IMO.

Okay... Complete solid build IMO.

As for build help, I would review these two threads to get you through the process:

    Your on-board sound and ethernet (LAN) are more than adequate for system needs. You don't need those types of components / adapters majority of the time on current motherboards.
