you need a dvd drive or a usb stick to install the os. the dvd drive for any game he has on disk.
with haswell cpu check that the power supply has been tested for haswell support. the haswell low power state will cause some power supply to shut down.

Go with a 2x4GB ram kit. Never run a single stick of ram. Also, you might want to bump up the CPU to an i5 4670. It is way better and only $25 more than the 4440 on newegg.
