You will be needing a disk drive to install the OS of course. An optical drive is just an optical drive, but the brands to look for are Samsung, LG, Sony, Pioneer, Plextor (expensive)...I would suggest this one:
Newegg.com - SAMSUNG Black 22X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA DVD Burner - CD / DVD Burners

optical drives are really not much better then the next one,as long as you dont buy from a crap brand. The brands that b1gapl mentioned are pretty much the only ones you should buy from (i have never heard of plextor though, so i dont know about them...)

Anyway, the optical drive that b1 linked to would do you fine.
