$900 Budget-Looking to play RTS games

I'm so freaking new to this. I play games like Hearts of Iron II, Darkest Hour, Company of Heroes, Red Orchestra, Crusader Kings II, and EU4. Could anyone put me in the right direction for building a gaming rig? I'm dabbling in more and more PC games and this bs HP laptop isn't cutting it. I would like to be able to play any of these games on High+ settings without a hiccup.

I put this parts list together but I don't know if its overkill or not.

Hey thanks MisterJ, any insight on what/why for these picks? Just if you have time. Thank you for building one in the first place.

Do I need a sound card? Or can I plug in speakers on it and immediately start listening to music and game sound?
