Help choosing motherboard, ram, optical drive

I want to build my first gaming rig, I've picked out a few things but I need some help choosing a decent motherboard, ram and optical drive. Current price on what i've picked is $834.94. I'd like to keep the cost close to $1000.


Here is what I have already ( also open to suggestions )

Intel Core i5 750 / Sapphire HD 5870 combo
