Looking at building a server out of old parts for gaming. Tell me what you think

i5 3570K
Corsair Vengeance 8gb
Corsair HX650
GTX 660


Now all I need is a itx case with itx motherboard.

You think that is good enough for arma 2 server hosting and everything?

Just use the integrated GPU unless you want to do some GPU folding or something like hashcat.

Should be more than plenty for hosting a couple of game instances, your main consideration would be upstream bandwidth, though. If you plan on hosting it at home most of your clients will also have a crappy amount of hops to make it through to your home internet connection.
