    I prefer Intel CPU and AMD graphics.

    Makes no sense, but I always find it works and I have never had trouble running anything.

    Power supply, get anything that is modular (very important) and for this system your building, anything 650W an up will be fine. I would recommend sticking to big name brands for PSU as you don't want something shit that gives up and breaks other components. I personally tend to stick to Antec or Corsair for PSU.

    Sound card, don't need one, your motherboards onboard sound will be enough.

    Fans, all you need is an uprated CPU fan, which tbh, you don't NEED, but I would recommend you do. Personally I would buy anything from Zalman that costs over £20 and fits my processor. They make bulletproof coolers and £20+ will get you a top notch one.
    If you want to do this right, and by right I mean buy a PC that will easily get you 3years of being able to play new games with the gfx on ultra without problems, then expect to pay about £500 to £800 excluding peripherals and case.
