You can also shave $30-40 off the build if you want to drop to a slightly slower RAM. 8GB should be plenty though. Also, I recommend you get an SSD while the harddrive prices are so high, 128GB should be plenty to use for a while, or if you have an old harddrive, you can install that too as a data drive.

you don't need a sound card. MB sound has gotten substantially better, hardly noticeable.
