Thats an LGA 2011 socket board with a 1155 processor, will have to fix that.
Heres a board that is making the rounds as a good price to performance item. Even allows SLI/Crossfire if you decide to do that later.

Drop the water cooler and the sound card, you dont need them. The Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO and onboard audio should be sufficient.

For a non Crossfire/SLI system, you wont need more than 600W.

Use the money you saved to get an i5 3570k, no reason to stay with Sandy Bridge unless high clockspeeds is your goal. Maybe bump up to a HD7870 if you can afford it.

Should be a good rig.
