With these changes, it actually ended up being $150 more.
I personally run 2 monitors off 1 card; I've done it off on-board before and it seems to confuse my computer.
Like I said if you're an audiophile then go for it. My take on it is sound cards can be added later if needed, but returning items can be a pain.
Not surprised its $150 more since the motherboard you selected is $125 more and the GPU is $100 more.
Grab an MSI P67A-GD55
, pretty much the same features as your first board choice, and less expensive after rebate.
