Hi everyone, I've decided to do a major overhaul upgrade for my PC, I was wondering if the products I plan on purchasing are good choices, I already have a decent graphics card and an 800 watts Corsair PSU which is why I won't bother buying a new one of those parts. Not sure if the sound card is really necessary, is it worth buying? I plan on using the PC as a gaming PC.

The products I plan on buying are, just wanna know if there are any products better than the one's I've picked, finally are there any fans you would recommend? Thanks for the help.

first off, buy ur parts from newegg. yes i know they're sometimes a little more expensive but seriously, amazons warranty's are crap. change to g.skill ripjaws x series 8gb ddr3-1600 cuz corsair is a little taller. also i WOULD recommend to not get a sound card BUT it's obvious that you want a cinema pc.

Thanks a lot for the advice, well I wasn't really sure about the sound card, I guessed it was a little gimmicky, I doubt I'd be able to tell a difference, I assume it's something for those who really know what to listen out for with the sound quality, I'm going to go for the ram you recommended. Everything else looks good right?
