I could use all the help you can give. Thanks :)

First question: What will the computer be used for? Gaming, General use, Work...?
Second: What's your budget and how flexible will you be with it?

It all looks fine, some things could be improved, but that totally depends on your budget. I doubt you'll really need a sound card, unless of course you'll use it for work. You will also need a DVD drive, I presume? And what about an OS? Have you already got that?

The sound inbuilt to your motherboard will be most probably, practically as good as that sound car anyway, so there's some money saved :D

All in all, nicely matched build in my opinion.
