Hi,
This is my first build.
So, I decided to have some advice from all of you.

This is my rig:
Intel core i5 4690k
MSI Z97 Gaming 7
WD 1 TB 7200 RPM
Corsair force ls 120 GB SSD
Kingston hyperx beast 8 GB stick 1866 MHz
MSI Geforce GTX 660 gaming 2GD5/OC
Cooler master K380
Cooler master 500 watt PSU

Please give me suggestions ASAP.

Yes that build is looking good to me. The GTX 660 is a great choice and has great price to performance ratio. That build should be able to run any game on at least medium settings.

The only thing I want to do on this is gaming, and rest of the things come later like day to day tasks & some video converting. I want to make this rig future proof for approx. 2-3 years.

And, BTW is there any need to install water cooling to it? I already want to install more fans on it.

Well if you want to futureproof, then you should get a GTX 970. I know it is expensive at $350, but it is well worth it as it will not get outdated for several years. I am very sure that it can run pretty much any game. I would also upgrade to an i7 4790k. Just a suggestion.

However, this setup should last for probably last for 3 years before it will get outdated.

No need for water cooling unless you are doing an extreme overclock. If youre only doing a mild overclock, get a hyper 212 evo. But if you're not overclocking at all, stock cooler should be fine.

First of all, Thanks for your suggestions.
But I am residing in India. components are very expensive there. and I am very tight on budget (40k-50k INR maximum). so I cannot afford that much pricey components. So, please suggest me those components which can fits in that budget.
