Need Advice on my Build

Alright, I'm planning on building a new PC that I can use to play mostly RTS games and simple FPS, as well as minecraft :D . Also I'm planning on running a minecraft server for my friend and I only off of it. My budget is around $650 Canadian.

My brother is an internet reviewer and he is able to get me a 400gb SSD and 8gb or ddr3 1333 so im set in that regard.

My Monitors resolution i believe is 800x800 :sol: so i don't need anything crazy for graphics, though i will upgrade my monitor down the road sometime.

There are a few parts that need to be used and are going in no matter what the community says for various reasons. These parts are:
Lian Li PC351b

Some sort of DVI to VGA adapter.
