What resolution will you be playing at? In any case, I'd recommend a lot more GPU than that.

For the DVD drive, Sony or Asus or Pioneer.

Any reason your not going for a Z68 MB?

You'll be able to play at a reasonable resolution with high detail graphics using that card.

I prefer ASUS as a brand but what are the differences between the 2
I'm game for anything, especially if its cheaper and around the same quality

I'd recommend an HD 6950 if you can manage, it's almost 2x the 5770's performance.
