All looks good for compatibility and price. I presume you went to partpicker and got the best prices. The HD 6670 is the only weak link in the chain, but good enough for minecraft. Might be a little light for Black Ops, tho. What resolution is your monitor?

You'll probably have to dial back some eye candy to have smooth game paly at 1080p with that card.
