Samsung F3 500 gig hard drive is cheap and very fast
and dvd drive will be fine . None seem to last for ever so buying a cheap one isnt a big problem . I have had a good experience with lite-on . Just make sure its a SATA dvd drive .
the RAM you have chosen looks to be C9 from the part number . You'd be better off with 1333 MHz c7 timings
Its actually faster in practice and often cheaper . Read the memory articles on this site
that gfx card should handle the resolution of your monitor .

The 955 is an awesome processor. Not really worth upgrading to a 965. G.Skill Ripjaws are good ram. Definitely go with the Samsung, I wish I did.
