For the power supply, I would go with the seasonic s12 620 or corsair tx650; both are about the same price. Avoid the cheaper brands such as coolermaster or thermaltake. For the dvd, check out the samsung blue ray combo.

For optical drives, my first choice is Samsung, closed followed by LG.

My last 5 PSU's have been Corsair.

My advice on optical drives are Sony or LG, I have had each last over 5yrs and thier still in my PC today, same with Western Digital HDD.

And for PSU's Seasonic, Corsair, and Antec in that order. You should be able to power your PC with a good 550w PSU, but going with a 600 or 650 will give you a nice amount of headroom to work with.

And lastly, I would go for Western Digital for your Hard Drives.
