Yes you do. You are buying a computer for overclocking the CPU. The intel one is not designed for overclocking. Don't worry you can get a good one for a good price.
Drop the soundcard unless you are an audiophile.
Sandisk Extreme I is better than the Samsung 840.
Check out these mods.
Sorry I forgot to add that I'll have 2 200mm fans on top. Does that make a difference?
Not sure. Which case? You might have to rearrange fans (not sure yet) but you need a proper cooler. Otherwise you could buy an expensive water cooler...like Corsair H80i. This comes with one fan that you can mount on top or rear.
