New build need advice

What are your thoughts on this build, have I forgot anything or should I change something please let me know.
I know I haven't listed a video card that will be later and I also have not listed OS I have a copy of Windows 8 Pro(it's for my wife anyway ) but I'm still debating I might put Windows 7 home premium on it.

This is a bundle
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

Rosewill R5 Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Case, comes with 2 x front fans, Fan Controller, USB2.0 & USB3.0 front ports, Removable top and lower front filter panels - Newegg.com

The bundle comes with one already so I thought I would add another
Kingston HyperX Blu 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C9D3B1/4G - Newegg.com

ASUS Model DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS 24X DVD Burner - Bulk Black - Newegg.com

Western Digital WD Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Newegg.com

Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G - OEM - Newegg.com

I have a Samsung 840 SSD 120 GB I am going to put in it for the OS the hard drive listed above will be a secondary data drive.

Total $698.94 with free shipping

The package bundle sure does look tempting.
What is this computer going to be used for?

I know I've got my finger almost on the buy button just waiting for a little feedback.

You might be pushing your luck adding an unmatched RAM module to the one that came with the bundle. Unmatched RAM (i.e. RAM not bought as a matched kit) sometimes doesn't play well together.

Thanks Paul after I get it going I'll have to check the temperatures and see but I will put it on the list of what I made need to do. I don't plan on doing any overclocking at all. My wife is complaining a little bit about her old slow desktop so I thought this might speed things up just a little

I might just have to press my luck on that ram

In that case, bench the rig with only the RAM in the package installed to make sure everything is working alright, then add the second module to see if they will get along with each other.
