Yep 500 GB is more then enough we have a 1T external HDD plus, the HDD we have now is only 250GB and it's only half full. The ram you linked first (http://www.ncix.ca/products/?sku=70136&vpn=KHX1600C9D3B1K2%2F8GX&manufacture=Kingston&promoid=1088) is the ram in the broken link I had. So now that you have all this info in your opinion would this be a good family computer that can easily run minecraft and some older games. (don't worry about it playing newer games I'm the only PC gamer in the house and, I'm getting my own PC.)

As long as it stays within the uses you have listed, that would seem to be fine.
