Parts Not Required: Keyboard, mouse and speakers I will get from razor down the road.

Parts Preferences: Intel only and ASUS as the manufacturer of MOBO and so on.

Overclocking: No

If you're not going to overclock then you could save some money by buying a non-K CPU such as the i5-2400 or i5-2500.
A CPU cooler can also help keep noise levels down.
