    I think that the CPU may come with a pad. Please correct me if I'm wrong
    And will I need a sound card?

    It may, be if you need to reinstall it or don't get it perfect the first time...AS5 is always something good to have in your build tools, like a screwdriver, but harder to get on short notice.

    Most people are fine with on board sound so unless you have a specific audio need or desire you're fine
