GPU: not needed i guess
Sound Card: 7.1 Surround Sound Card around $80 [any1 from Asus/Creative][only if you are connecting speakers to your PC]

Blu ray Player: LG BH10LS30 Blu-ray Drive $75

Logitech Keyboard/Mouse Combo $40
Case: Am not good in this, so if any1 can fill in here
PSU: 350W - 450W 80+ bronze/gold [if planning to do cable management, than a modular PSU, a little costly, will do the thing]
Seasonic SS-350TGM 350W PFC 80PLUS Gold $75
am i missing anything?
Prices are listed using, tried to enter an average amount of the items
Total goes to around $750[considering 120GB SSD], you can use the remaining $50 for the case I guess

Ohh, and also, if you dont want to get a sound card, you can use the HDMI from the motherboard, and get the speaker output from the tv itself

or for best quality, an AV receiver should give you a blasting entertainment
Thank you, this is VERY close to what I was looking at myself. Good to know someone else is also suggesting the i3.
