Do you think this is a good build for my future gaming computer?

Hello there I am currently looking into building a computer and I have some parts picked out and im wondering if they are good for what I want to be doing.

I am mostly going to be playing games like LoL and diablo 3, but I am also probably going to be playing games like battlefield and heavily modded versions of minecraft. I want to be able to get well over 80 fps on LoL and d3 while getting decent fps in battlefield and high fps in minecraft.

Specs:
CPU: Intel® Core™ i5-4460 3.20 GHz 6MB LGA1150
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler w/ PWM fan
Motherboard: ASRock Z97 Pro4 ATX w/ Intel GbLAN, 2 PCIe x16, 2 PCIe x1, 2 PCI, 1 x M.2, 6x SATA 6Gb/s
RAM: 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1600MHz G.SKILL Ripjaws X
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 2GB 16X
Power Supply: 600 Watts - Corsair CX600 600W 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
Memory: 1TB Western Digital Caviar Blue SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 7200 RPM HDD
Monitor: 22" Widescreen 1920x1080 LG 22M34D-B 5ms LED Backlight, D-Sub, DVI-D & Analog RGB(Two of these)

I am going to be using one of my monitors for playing games and the other for browsing, recording, streaming, etc.

  1. If you can stretch your budget further i would suggest getting a better gpu. An r9 280x or a gtx 760 will be far better for your expectations.

    -Mobo- No point in a Z97 or Z87 mobo if you have a locked CPU (non-k cpus can't be overclocked, the Z motherboards are for overclocking)
    -GPU- the gtx 770 will get you much better performance, you will be able to get 60 FPS average on BF4 at ultra settings with the gtx 770, the 660 would probably get you high settings with some dips below 60 fps, would have to check some benchmarks.
    -PSU- THe corsair cx uses chinese capacitors so I don't recommend them very often (only on super tight budget builds <$500). XFX is made by seasonic which is pretty much the best PSU manufacturer. If you want/trust Corsair, go for the HX series, there are some HX series 650w at around $80 I believe.
