Question Building a new Gaming rig, do i have the right parts ?

I am building a new PC. I just need to know if all my parts will work together. And if there are better alternatives. what would you recommend ? my budget is around 600$ so i cant go over that.
My parts:

hard drive: Western Digital WD Blue WD2500AAKX 250GB 7200 RPM

GPU: EVGA 01G-P4-3650-KR GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Powersupply: COOLER MASTER GX 450W RS450-ACAAD3-US 450W ATX12V v2.31

ram: CORSAIR Vengeance 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3

Motherboard: MSI B75MA-P45 LGA 1155 Intel B75 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel

case: NZXT Source 210

CPU: Intel Core i5-3330 ivy bridge 3.0GHz

Should I get a Cd drive to install windows 7,8?
Lastly is the graphics card good with the upcoming games.
Any help would be nice

Looks pretty good, but an optical (disk) drive is a necessity for installing an OS like you said. Also I know you have a strict budget of $600, but if you could push that just a little, I personally think it would be worth it to upgrade to a 2G 650 and get 8Gs of ram, for a gaming rig.

Good luck with your first build!

You Don't need an Optical Drive USB Installation provided you already have a computer

Yea I've mentioned it a few times before as others have too. Optical isn't needed for really anything anymore as long as you can transfer the data via flash drive.

To the OP.
I would ditch that PSU for a Corsair 500w CX at least, or if you can stretch the budget a Seasonic S2 520w.

You can relieve 10 bucks by swapping to this board instead.
Newegg.com - ASRock B75M-DGS R2.0 LGA 1155 Intel B75 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

PSU
SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze 520W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Newegg.com
CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Newegg.com

For the HDD this would be a better option.
Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Newegg.com

This is also a very speedy drive.
SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 ST250DM001 / HD253GJ 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Newegg.com

The 650ti is kind of weak already, and next gen games are going to make it really weak. Not much more you can do there unless you have a bigger budget. The next thing to do would be drop your CPU to an FX 4300, get a cheap motherboard, and use the extra cash saved for a 660.

I second getting 8GB of RAM.

Kingston HyperX Black 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX16C9B1BK2/8X - Newegg.com
