Need help with deciding parts for gaming PC

So I have everything except an optical drive (I have no clue what kind to get, like all I need a basic one, but I don't know what is recommended or compatible) and then a case (if I would require a mid or full tower) and I would prefer the case have an open side window and LEDs with it or compatible. Thanks!

Also, if anyone could check what I have so far, I think everything looks fine.

Mid tower is fine to you, only get a full tower for EATX mobos. I'd stay away from EVGA 970s for the time being, they had some issues in the production (mostly regarding the contact of the custom cooler), Asus/Gigabyte/MSI are good alternatives though. The rest is kinda okay, though you might want to get a 650W PSU for future SLI.

I'm sorry, but what is SLI

SLI is Scalable Link Interface, in other words, let's your put another same graphics card in the computer for added performance. SLI is recommended specially for 4K or when you don't have enough fps.
