Building a new gaming PC...need advice :)

Hi Everyone ,

I'll cut to the chase and go straight to the subject...I'm trying to build a new Gaming PC using certain components that my friend and I put together , within a budget...so here are the components :

Intel i5 3470 3.2GHz 6mb
MSI GeForce GTX660 2Gb DDR5
MSI Z77A-GD55
RAM Memory Kingston 8Gb(2x4Gb) 1600MHz
CoolerMaster Silencio SS1 RC
Power Suply Chieftech GPS-600A8

...I'm quite new to the whole story and i was wondering if this configuration will still be useful for another 2 years and is it even worth buying ?

(the whole config. sums up to 750 euros , including peripherals)

Thank You in advance :)

    No they will not ship to your cpuntry so maybe best find local store.

    XFX , seasonic is maybe not as good as super flower but maybe they can do the job:)
