Default Computer Build

So I am about to build my first computer my budget is 900 USD and this is what I have.

OutletPC.com - Asus P8H67-M PRO/CSM Barebones Kit with Intel Core i5-2500 Processor

OutletPC.com - Asus GT640-2GD3 GeForce GT 640 PCIe 3.0 x16 Video Card w/ 2GB DDR3

OutletPC.com - Western Digital WD1600BB 160 GB 7200RPM IDE 3.5" Hard Drive - Refurbis

OutletPC.com - Lite-On IHAS524-T06 24x Black SATA DVDRW Drive w/ LabelTag

I will have to buy a better power supply
I dont think im missing anything but knowing me I probably am

What is the purpose for the machine?
For 774 you can make a pretty nice gaming rig with a 560ti for graphics, a 2500k, a 1TB HDD, a 650w Corsair PSU, and with a budget of 900 you can add an SSD.

Also, for US purchases use newegg.com

I just noticed you chose an IDE drive as well. Aged tech and too slow. You want a SATA drive.

Here, I built this machine based on your needs and your budget. You can add in any SATA DVD burner because all the cheaper ones are pretty much the same.

CPU:
Newegg.com - Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I53570K

Motherboard:
Newegg.com - ASRock Z75 Pro3 LGA 1155 Intel Z75 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

RAM:
Newegg.com - Kingston HyperX Blu Red Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 Desktop Memory Model KHX16C10B1RK2/16

GPU:
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GV-N560UD-1G GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

PSU:
Newegg.com - CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply

SSD:
Newegg.com - Corsair Neutron Series CSSD-N120GB3-BK 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

HDD:
Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 ST3500641AS-RK 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Case:
Newegg.com - COUGAR Solution Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with 12cm COUGAR TURBINE HYPER-SPIN Bearing Silent Fan and USB 3.0

If you need to save a bit of cash for shipping + the optical then you can swap the 3570k for the 2500k which will save you another 10 bucks.
