Which new Macbook Pro for first-time buyer?

Im really torn on which MBP to get.

What I want to do with the notebook is mostly for using Illustrator or Photoshop, and maybe some light gaming like WoW in addition to general usage. Im looking at the Pro because I really want the optical drive, and I dont really care if the storage is SSD as I would rather have the 500GB+ drives over the smaller, faster solid states, so im not considering the rMBP or Air.

This is my first Mac so I want to make sure I get the right choice on what is good enough for this type of usage but also so it will last me a few years.

Any feedback is appreciated, Thanks!
