No clue about sound card.... but.....
Dayton DTA-100a 50w x2 mini amp - $100 (Partsexpress)
Polk Audio TSi100 Bookshelfs - $200 (newegg)
Dayton SUB120 subwoofer - $160 (Partsexpess)
12-14 awg speaker wire (however much you need, found at PE)
3.5mm to RCA wire - $like 2 (partsexpress)
Sound card, maybe an Asus Xonar for music / movies? I've read that's whats recommended for that purpose. Gaming, I hear the XFi is good, but I forget the proper model.
If that's stretching budget too tight, just add the sound card later, get the SSD first over the sound card.
