    Check ebuyer.com; you might find some or all items cheaper there.

    I would also advise dropping the sound card, and investing the cash into a more powerful card and a larger screen, unless you have a sound system that can take advantage of the card's capabilities.

    Are you looking to have a dual-card setup in the future? Unless that's the case, get a lower-powered, cheaper PSU. The Antec NEO ECO 625W is a good option.

    Lastly, look at an AMD setup if you can; the new six-core Thuban CPUs are worth it if they're in your price range.

    I like the idea that you went with a sound card and the Asus Xonar series is a good one. Please let us know how your Xonar sounds.

    I think you could do without one.

    PhysX is more or less pointless; don't buy into the hype IMHO, unless you've got a spare 8 or 9 series GeForce card lying around that you can use.

    It does, but only if you have the option enabled in the game's settings. Also, the visual benefits from it are not worth the insane price premium.
