It should play the games you mentioned at 1920 x 1080p on some decent quality settings I think.

At least you won't have to go mini or micro on anything and will have an easier time upgrading, while

getting the newest CPU/motherboard. There's no optical drive, as they're becoming a bit obsolete for many.

But you can add the one you listed in your own build.
