Please get a i5-3570K, for gaming it will offer the same performance at the 3770k, as Hyperthreading makes no difference to games , they will drop the price a bit

Get a GTX670 instead of the 680, the 680 only offers a tiny fraction more performance for a heck of a lot more money, both will be able to run games on max with no problem

Drop the sound card, and add it back in later on down the track, onboard sound though not as high a quality as the Xonar, will not cause any performance issues and works just fine, most people don't have good enough headphones or speakers to even tell the difference between onboard sound and a high quality sound card
