Good choice - you might want to take a look at the slimmer Carbide 500R as well.

Actually useless - you don't need to spend money on this when the onboard audio will handle up to a 7.1 channel with no problems.

16GB is pretty useless as is anything over 1600 for a Z68 setup.

A couple of months ago I would've recommended a 570 without breaking a sweat but now with the 680 and 7870 the 570 is quickly becoming a moot point.

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3P - $175.99
CPU: 3.30GHz Intel Core i5-2500K - $219.99
Cooler: Noctua NH-U9B - $59.99
RAM: 8GB Crucial Ballistix Sport 1600MHz 1.5V - $46.99
SSD: 128GB Crucial M4 - $159.99
HD: Seagate Barracuda Green 2TB - $119.99

also you might want to know you can get an i7 4770k and a MOBO for the price of that dinky i5. Yes you probably wont use hyper threading and all those cores NOW. But as i have said many times. It would take some serious convincing to get me to believe that with the xbox one and ps4 using multiple cores that they wont be making PC games take advantage of the same tech.
Especialy when LOTS of games we play are cross platform.
