Default Need help to build a Karaoke PC

Ok,

I'm pretty good with building PC's for the most part, a couple days ago I had an odd request.

A friend wants me to build portable PC for playing karaoke!

Here's what I've come up with:

Silverstone Sugo SG02B-F Black

Corsair CMPSU-400CX

ASUS P5G41-M LE/CSM mATX LGA775 (on sale NCIX)

Intel Pentium E6500

Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X4096-6400C5C 4GB

Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB

AuzenTech Bravura PCI-E 7.1 Sound Card

XFX Radeon HD 5770


Thing is, I don't really know the first thing about GPU or sound card requirements for a Karaoke machine...is this over board? will a decent On Board set do?

Opinions appreciated thanks!

Thanks,

But I'm not sure what this has got to do with picking out the hardware parts for playing Karaoke?

To be honest I hope this gets answered as well. I don't use computer speakers for my sound, I actually use the optical out and connect it to my Dolby Digital Receiver and get full 5.1 Surround. When I want to Karaoke (actually my wife is the one that does, Vietnamese loooove their singing. lol), I hook up the wireless mic box to the receiver and either use Karaoke files on my HD or pop in one of our many Pacific Mall DVD's and a way we go! lol There's probably an easier way but I've never heard it. :D
