Default Re: my build

the onboard sound is probably good; there is no need for the additional sound card. The case you have has PLENTY of fans, I would use that money to buy as much video card as you can.

if you REALLY need a wireless card, get one with pcie interface:
Newegg.com - Rosewill RNX-N250PCe (RNWD-11005) Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n PCI Express 150/300Mbps 2T2R 64-bit/128-bit WEP, TKIP, and AES WPA, WPA2

a better video card:
Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100314-3L Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

im not sure if the asrock motherboards are the best choice. for about the same price you can get Newegg.com - ASUS P8Z68-V LE LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS which i have been very happy with.

if you are going to get a z68, you should get an ssd
how about this one:
Newegg.com - Corsair Force Series 3 CSSD-F60GB3A-BK 2.5" 60GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

you probably dont need 1.5 tb of hard drive, get this 500 gb:
Newegg.com - Samsung by Seagate Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ/ST500DM005 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

that might be bit overbudget...
if you arent going to be gaming, then you can get away with a lot cheaper stuff and amd alternatives.
