    I suggest you not to buy the sound card. They are only needed for the professional musicians and usually are not required for home users.

    The other stuff is great, it is worth buying

    Yes that is a really great deal! The power supply is a trusted name brand. As for the sound card it will do everything you need it too. If I could replace one thing though I would replace the ATI gpu with an nvidia GTX 285 in benchmarks it comes out ahead of that ATI a lot of the time.

    Those parts should be fine. If you are looking to cut down on the price the sound card isn't really necessary as the motherboard has a descent 5.1 onboard sound and seeing how your getting 5.1 speakers it may be best to skip the sound card.

    If you feel comfortable you can try to overclock cheaper CPU's and Graphics Cards to match your current. That can get you close to $1000
