Good build. I would lose the sound card though.

It all looks fine; some of the components are unfamiliar to me, but then again I stick to intel systems. I doubt you'd need 850w, a 750w psu would still be enough for SLI. The only other problem I have is the GPU - you should aim for a 560ti or a 7850.

NB: Just one query, what will this computer be used for? Gaming I presume?
