Here's my take on this build. A bit over budget, but it's worth it for the money. MUCH better motherboard and a better GPU is always nice.

Your motherboard has audio outputs so you don't need an audio card.

Alot of parts were changed, but it will work pretty much the same. It also has a much better graphics card
