I went to pcpartpicker.com and built the system to the best of your desires. I must inform you, the Optics drive you want is not available on this site so I picked the next closest, Lite-On iHOS104-08 Blu-Ray/DVD/CD Drive. The external HDD you want was also not an option but being that it is connected via USB, it should not matter in terms of compatibility. There are 3 big things that you forgot to add to this list of parts, the operating system (OS), the Power supply unit (PSU), and the computer case. Both, I would say, are quite important for your system. :) I would go with a Corsair Gaming 700W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V Power Supply. It should be strong enough to power your system and is compatible with your system as well. Here is a link to the system you have laid out. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1gcO3 This is your build minus the items I mentioned above and according to this site, all parts are compatible. You can play around with it as you see fit and even start over fresh with a new build to see if the parts are compatible in case you change your mind. I recommend Newegg.com for all the parts you buy unless they are out of stock.

Credit to Philpower2 for showing me pcpartpicker.com a long time back!
