Default Is this a good build?

I been wanting to build my first computer for a little while now and I have been looking around and I have picked some parts which I think are good. I will be using the computer for game (mainly a lot of Minecraft).

Please give me some feedback

Intel Core i5 3470
Asrock B75 Pro3-M
Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3-1600
Galaxy 2GB Nvidia Geforce GTX660 GC
Sharkoon T9/T28
Antec VP450P

Default Re: Is this a good build?

Before anyone can effectively give you build advice, we'd need to know a few things.

What is your maximum budget?

How long do you intend to keep this computer?

Is there a possibility that you may decide to add another GTX 660 card in the future for SLI performance?

What monitor resolution will you be seeking?

Need budget please.
Recommend ASUS Z77 mobo.
Prefer EVGA vidcards
Recommend at least a 550w Antec PSU
What case? Gamers need cases with good airflow/cooling for those long frag sessions. Best would be a full-tower case like the Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced, or the HAF 922 if a mid-tower case is required.
