I'm building my first gaming computer on a budget of around £900 give or take, so I can play games like diablo 3, shogun total war and battlefield 3. Would this build be sufficient and work together well to play those games. Are there any room for improvements on the budget?

I found a good bundle for the CPU, Motherboard, memory and CPU cooler.

CPU: i5 3570K. Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V LX z77. Memory: Corsair 8GB DDR3 1600MHz RAM. Heatsink: Intel Branded CPU Cooler.

Would it be wise to buy a new CPU heatsink shown in the link below, or is the one in the bundle sufficient.

For the graphic's card I've chosen I'm wondering if it's the right choice or if there is a better one.

I was wondering if a sound card would be a good buy or whether it would be a waste of money? I'm only using it for gaming.
