Since I'm new to building PCs, I figured it would be a good idea to post here before buying anything. Is there anything wrong with any of these components? I don't know how compatible computer parts are, but any help would be appreciated, any suggestions and whatnot.
 
Solution
About the only alteration I would make to that setup would be to downgrade the graphics card to a GTX670. It's $100 cheaper and only marginally less powerfull.

Also, this is probably a dumb question, but how does audio factor into all this? Not sure if I should be something along the lines of ASUS Xonar DX 7.1 Channels PCI Express x1 Interface Sound Card, or any suggestions? That doesn't really dael with gaming but if anyone has nay recommendations, I'm all ears.
