Hey bro, i Have just completed a build myself and my advice would be not to rush into anything and take your time. Even if you are on a budget, i would put the power supply and cpu with motherboard on top of my list. The rest can be added slowly if you choose too. If these 3 products are of decent quality( and i dont mean over expensive) then you have a good foundation for adding ram and opical drives and ssd when you can get more cash together. I personally would go without for a while just to get the machine i WANT even if i had to save a little i would. Its just a thought. I agree with your logic on the sound card as it corresponds with what i am saying here about waiting a little until your wallet has some more cash in it. If you take your time then building it yourself is justifiable as opposed to buying one already built. Either way has benefits. I hope this helps.
From the research I have been doing in the last week or so I've been kind of leaning towards going with the Intel I5. I had been thinking I didn't really need the sound card but I added here just because that was my initial thought. I had thought about skipping on the Blu-ray drive and just putting in a DVD/CD drive to save some money, but I haven't really deceided yet. Thanks for the advice. Any other thoughts from anyone would appreciated.
