Looks just fine to me. Don't know what your budget is, but an SSD drive would be a nice addition.
Also, since you aren't overclocking you could go with an H77 board and save a few bucks perhaps.
Another thing I noticed is that case does not have front USB 3.0 ports. Not sure if USB 3.0 is important for you or not.

I don't want an SSD, I had a B75 motherboard, someone said this one was better. Thanks for telling me about the case though, didn't know that!

Oh, by the way! I never use the front USB ports, I always use the back of the computer. The USB ports on the back are actually from your motherboard (my motherboard had 2 x 3.0 and 3 x 2.0 USB ports)

I just checked on that website and for the same price you can get a HD 7870 for the same price. It is a bit faster :p  http://azerty.nl/0-3921-518933/club-3d-radeon-hd-7870-r...

Well, I saw some benchmarks and the difference isn't really that big. Also, I have a MSI Twin Frozr which is pretty good. I like NVidia > AMD.

Actually it is. Can i ask why? AMD has better FPS per dollar.

NVidia got some features that AMD doesn't have. For example, NVidia cards have Physx while AMD cards have nothing similair to this.

Does anyone have any other options? I'll stick with the GTX 660 and I don't need a processor or motherboard for overclocking, as I won't ever overclock.
