If you could list the specific item names, it can help me help you.

Uhhh, I chose the i5 3550 instead of the K series, and the H77 motherboard, they are meant for normal use and not overclock?
And also, hows my video card? Should I get that or just a normal evga gtx 560 Ti 1gb or 2gb?

I sometimes plug in my earphones on the desktop though o.o so I guess I need the sound card or the holes that I plug my earphones into, are they the same?

They are. Modern day MOBOs have good quality onboard sound.

Does my mobo have it?
May 31, 2012 1:18:07 AM

Yes it does.
May 31, 2012 2:18:59 AM

So I can plug in my earphones onto that mobo?
May 31, 2012 3:38:24 AM

Yes, and the case connects the audio too.

Thank you, but I see the audio holes are used at the back of case, not the front o.O. So the rest of my build is perfect for a ~$1000 non overclock gaming pc right?

So that means I have to plug my earphones onto the back of the case?
May 31, 2012 5:01:57 AM

The case has audio ports.
May 31, 2012 5:06:41 AM

Ohh, so the mobo has onboard sound, the case has back AND front audio ports that I could use, right?
