    Onboard sound will do fine.

    Onboard sound will give you a performance hit if it's 5.1 in CPU intensive games though.

    The PSU sounds dodgy, I wouldn't count on it.. get this instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817703009

    Do not get that graphics card. It's the old GTX260 version. That one is slower than the HD4870 512MB and more expensive. Get this instead:

    or

    Personally I'd go for the HD4870. The GTX260 Core 216 is slightly faster, but it's 1/3 more expensive and definitely not that much faster.
