Tell us what the stuff is instead of link dumping.

Sorry to say it but that's exactly what I was thinking. Happy to assist but at least post what the components are instead of sending us on a scavenger hunt.

I'd suggest a better motherboard personally(Asus p8p67 series or the Z series or Gigabyte's p67 or Zs) . And you won't need the sound card with the 570, unless your really need 7.1. You can use the 570's hdmi for surround sound. I'd also buy a corsair power supply over one you listed(but that's because I love corsair PSU and they are beast). I'd also push you to wait on rest of the nvidia 600 series cards to release(not far off unless your buying today), those cards have some nice extra perks compared to the 500 series and the 600 series will only make the 500 cheaper as well.

yeah, I agree with this totally. You need to shop some more, too much money being spent on sub par parts here.

Get a better mobo, Asrock, asus, etc. Get rid of that SSD and get a intel or crucial drive, Ditch that GPU and hold off for a couple of weeks until Nvidia releases more of the 600 cards like what was said. That is a decent enough soundcard but they will go for $130 on sale regularly.
You power supply is one of the best on the market in that range of power, the ONLY reason to go with a corsair would be to have a modular supply, that PC unit is not modular.
Everything else is fine (good case) but you didn't post any ram, get 8-16 gigs as its cheap enough, so why not.

Blasting brown notes for 10 years and counting!

If you're working within a particular budget, another thing to consider is whether you actually want a 2700K processor for what you're doing when you could instead get a more than capable 2500K and put the savings towards a GTX 680 when they come back in stock.
