About the parts you have shown me,
I do like the CD DVD writer because it is cheap
However I don't like the case because it is mid-ATX and I have heard that air flow is good for computers, thus I would prefer an ATX case.
Also, the graphics card is a little on the expensive side at $250
The other parts seem fine to me.
