    Where are you buying it from? What's your budget?

    You'll be better off with a 3570k rig, however if you are buying that, get rid of the soundcard. You don't need that since the onboard audio is fine.

    Edit: Just realized it was PCPartPicker, still, what's your budget?

    Add keyboard and mouse, it's slightly higher budget but I'd say it's well worth it.

    If you can push it further get a i5-3570k+Z77 motherboard.
