What is your budget? The most important part of a gaming build is the gpu. Almost always the gpu should be the most expensive part in a gaming build.

I am considering a Gigabyte GTX 660, Is it worth it?

Yes that will be a good gaming build, but I think you can do better for your budget. I would get a lower wattage power supply and then upgrade the graphics card a little bit.

Nvidia got screwed in this graphics card series, so none of their cards are really priced well. I would get a radeon 7870 you can get it for around the same price and it will perform better.

WOW if you can get that for $900-$1000nzd go for it. I just tried to put a $1000nzd build together at pcpartpicker and it wasn't close to as good as that. Look at it http://pcpartpicker.com/nz/p/l2hj
