Everything looks good, but I would look into getting a more high powered processor, such as Intel Core 2 Duo, or Core 2 Quad. The soundcard is unnecessary since your motherboard has one built in. Also, there is a motherboard called the Evga nforce 750i motherboard that I believe is better and the same price. And please, don't buy from newegg.com. Tigerdirect.com is cheaper and you'll find all of that and more.
edit -- you need a power supply

You are on it. Good specs with a couple of problems and a couple of my opinions. First off don't cheat by typing standard power supply. You will be amazed by not picking the right power supply really because the 1000watt power supply market is the most sought after and the company's know that. I have seen 750watt power supplies with better adaptivity. So do your research on that or you will have a 1000watt of power that will never make it to the board and will have spent alot more money on that. You have a hard drive wanting a 1000watt power supply but read the fine print. Like you would with no other power supply wattage on the market. Second you did not list your water blocks for you computer you listed coolant because I don't think you will need coolant with the corsair H series processor cooler. Another thing the cold cathod light is fine and all not really bright though if you intend to have it so you can work on computer or show off. The most popular lights right now are logsis true color cold cathod or phobya lights and lighting systems, Bit phoenix also has some accent type lights but are not really what I would call the big winners of 2012.
For one thing you dont want a recertified board. Did you read the pathetic reviews from people who bought it? One guy has returned the board 8 times! Buy a new board, not someone elses problems. Another thing is that your cpu stinks. Only runs an 800FSB and has a puny 2MB cache. I suggest you forego buying a sound card and go with a faster cpu or this combo board/cpu--will destroy what you have bad and is brand new and only $8 more than the cpu, board and sound card you have listed. It's 8 channel onboard sound will probably be good enough so you don't need a sound card.
If you can afford it I'd go with this ram:
DDR2 1066 will give you crisper performance than DDR2 800. I use this Dominator in my Vista gaming rig. Awesome ram. I just wish it was that cheap when I bought it. A real steal right now with that rebate.
Thats a Crossfire board so I suggest you go with an ATI card if you ever plan to run 2 cards somewhere down the road.Just don't use a 4870 if you plan on adding a second 4870 someday. Will handle the 4870 fine in one slot at X16 but P45 boards run Crossfire at X8 per slot which is more than enough for a couple 4850s but an X8 slot cant handle the massive bandwidth of the 4870s DDR5 memory. I confirmed that with ATI before I upgraded my Vista gamer with 2 4870s. Why I went with an X48 board that runs both slots at X16.

While I agree with Mike about everything else the NewEgg vs TigerDirect portion I disagree with to some degree.
While TigerDirect may be cheaper in some areas NewEgg makes up for and I think surpasses them in: Customer Support.
I had a Mother Board show up DOA, called them up, filled out an online form and they were shipping a new one next day.
Customer Reviews: The reviews from others help your buying decision immensely.
Return Policy: TigerDirect has a strict return and replacement policy. If returned you only get store credit.
However, Mike is right, no need for a sound card unless you are doing professional mixing or something. The dual core is a great idea, I built my own computer and have yet to regret going dual core. I'd go for a better video card, maybe take advantage of the black Friday and cyber Monday sales coming up.
You may also want to look into getting some better fans. Often the cases just come with cheap fans that may not keep you computer cool enough for gaming, especially if you will be overclocking.

if i were u, i would take out the audio card and invest it into the GPU. the 9600 is a meh. if u wanna build a gaming computer upgrade to a 9800 gtx or gt even. but it also depends on ur monitor and wat resolutions u play at.
u might want to check if ur E5200 45nm cpu will work on the 680i. i would reconsider the mb cause the 680i is kinda kinda old. and looking at the reviews, it doesn't seem a very good quality board.

really good specs there but id go for a 3 ghz processor and maybe a board with duel graphics capability and a rapter hard drive fastest on the market and i think u should look at the psu somewhere around 500w,700w or u could go extreme at a 1000w your system will run much more stable with a decent power supply and something that isnt pushed to its limits
