First Time Builder for PC 850$ Budget

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/i9jG

This is what i'm looking at. I already have a 750W PSU and another 1TB drive Monitor & Keyboard. Does this look like a solid setup and all of the components work together? I'm open to ideas and criticism. I have a 850$ budget give or take.

    Nothing shows up on your link other than choosing parts.

  3. You don't really need a sound card unless you do really want one. Also I would get a newer Ivy Bridge processor. Finally a better CPU cooler is the Hyper 212 EVO. I added all these changes to your build, keeping it around the same price. If you have any questions please ask.

    Drop the sound card.

    If you don't plan on going with SLI/Crossfire then look at this board for an option.
