Can someone tell me what they think of my pcpartpicker.com specification?

I ask this a lot because I can't make my mind up. I'm looking to play games like Battlefield 4 and Crysis 3 with 40 fps around medium-high specs. My budget is £600 so I am pretty much perfectly on it, so if changes are to be made I wouldn't like them to be too expensive. Thanks for the help,

Any answers are much appreciated.

I know it would cost more but would the original optical drive still work with this? I would be like to be able to watch Blu-Rays on this. Also, is there a difference between the NZXT 210 and the Zalman Z9? I'm not a big fan of the Z9, but would accept it if there was no other solution. Thanks for the help, anyway.
