I already have my Mouse, keyboard, and Case. I had a few questions about some of my part choices. This is my first Build and I will be finally ordering most of my parts this weekend.

First off, I didn't know what to get for a WIFI card, Do you guys have any suggestions?

I was looking for a good video card in the price range that it was in, Do you guys have any better suggestions?

Do I need some special Sound card for this Sound system?

How do I put it all together? Is there some proper procedure or do I just put all the parts in, turn it on, and Install the OS?

I have been learning more and more, yet I still don't fully understand alot of specs when I am looking at parts. It has been fun learning. I will be just starting to step into overclocking. Any tips or suggestions, or any good reads?

Any other suggestions?

Thank you guys very much!

For the WiFi card I have a suggestion, otherwise the rig is rock solid.

The card linked below has two (big) advantages - you can place the antenna on higher ground, thus potentially have better signal/speed; and second it supports WiFi b/g/n - which doubles data rate vs b/g provided your router is compatible. (as a side note on my setup only a card with an antenna worked, the ones the style you linked were screened by the case/bureau and had lousy signal strength).

Imho you don't "need" a soundcard, you can keep the one integrated on the mobo until you know you want something else. There are integrated sound cards that are decent (such as yours), but also discrete cards that are rubbish. Imho keep the integrated sound until you're willing to spend the $$$ for a Xonar DX.
