That would perfectly fit what you want your computer to do.
This is a VERY rough estimate: 60 (You don't really need a sound card if your motherboard has built in sound)+80+80+130+100+100+70+20+50
Around 700 dollars.

I would go with Intel mobo and processor though.
Core 2 Quad and Asus P5Q are good.
Antec 900 Case
If you need more gaming power, Powercolor 4870 or 9800 GTX+
