Yep, you're good to go. I'd highly recommend buying an SSD, though. It'll make a BIG difference as to how fast your computer "feels."

(Oh, and don't get windows 8 unless you've tried it and LIKE it. It's still got a fair number of compatibility issues.)

definitely SSD would make a great addition

as well as upgrade the cpu cooler to at least an EVO 212 from coolermaster, it'll be worth the money. (30$only)

OK so i added
Lite-On Super AllWrite 24X SATA DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Drive - Bulk - IHAS124-04 Version C (Black)

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120mm PWM Fan (RR-212E-20PK-R2)

Cooler Master MegaFlow 200mm Blue LED Computer Case Fan (R4-LUS-07AB-GP)

I am going to wait on the ssd for now
