More just general productivity. Some light gaming like minecraft, Crusader Kings 2, Civ 5 , etc. Still I just want the machine to be fast and future proof. Is this a good build for that?

Without question the build you have wil work fine for the purposes you listed. Think about an AM3+ mobo - that will let you upgrade to FX chips down the road. Something like this:

Also, you do not have an Operating System listed; go with windows 7 (its like $95)
