Is this a prebuilt or not? If you're building it yourself you are wasting money on the sound card, that is not a necessity, and that PSU is a bad choice. You can definitely get a much better PSU.

Also not that it's a bad case, but the Corsair 780T is quite large, you can definitely cut down on the case size since you don't really need a full tower.

I have had exceptional luck with Corsair PSU, even on the budget side. Never had one single issue with one.
Considering the cost for the CPU/GPU/RAM and the premium for prebuilt I don't feel you did too bad.
