should pick i5 on microcenter

I need help with optical drives and any pieces I missed. Also can someone help me find a link with a windows 7 ultimate(college edition). I have been searching and all I see is 8 pro.

Lastly, will this system be ok at running future games and will it do pretty well? Thanks!

More about possibly 700 dollars
  1. Yes the GTX 660 will run BF4 I'd assume on high or medium. I would consider upgrading the power supply to a CX600 Corsair and it is 64 $ on Amazon. Everything else looks fine.
  2. GTX 660 runs BF3 on ultra preset with 55+FPS
  3. Am I missing anything other than optical drives?
  4. Best answer
    monitor, keyboard, mouse, optical drive is all you need now
  5. Can you point me towards a optical drive that will fit
