Yes. I would spend the extra ~$60 for a GTX 770, though. EVGA's ACX model would be good.

Get a 2x4GB RAM kit instead. You want to have either two or four sticks so that the RAM runs in dual channel mode.

Yes its a good build, tho would love to see an AMD GPU like this http://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-Radeon-Mini-Displayport-...

BUT yes it is a good build, tho if you want to get into real detail you could look at scan.co.uk (yes its a uk company) BUT if you look at the product details you can the amount of cores, and more detailed discriptions allowing you to compare them. though a 670 is a great card, if you put the extra in a 7970 or a 770 then you will defo see the improvements.
and yeah try getting a double set of RAM as ihog suggested.

Sorry for double post, but try getting a bigger case, with such a small one you may struggle with cooling and wires etc even putting the things in it! :p  i have seen some bigger cases for around the same price, ish

Yeah man, ive just built a new setup and used this http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Cases/Midi+To...

alot of space and some room on the other side for some cable management, also i love the design of it :p 

however ive only noticed that at the front, it kinda restricts the airflow as air can only be brought in through the mesh at the sides, (theres 2 fan slots at the front and 1 at the bottom!,and one rear and 2 top slots aswell!) so far i love it!
